"Wendy and I first worked together in the mid 90's - we created fashion and cover stories for YOU magazine bursting with quirk and humour, colourful creative takes on trends that the readers loved, that made them smile. Since then we've collaborated together on fashion and beauty for Cosmopolitan Magazine and most recently worked together on the creation of independent print magazine - Perfect Bound. Wendy is a photographer's photographer - she's always looking for the 'story', the 'art' in an image - looking beyond the superficial capture. Her personal projects are full of beauty and individuality and there's good reason she has won awards and her images have been hung in exhibitions. From photojournalism to nature photography; from fairground attractions to windswept, beachy canvas portraits, her work is constantly evolving and looks as stunning on the printed page as it does hanging framed on the wall."

"I'd followed Wendy and her work for at least 20 years but I had never seemed to have the right project to give her, until the summer of 2018. That project was the launch of the TV show, The Bi Life. The shoot required a photographer with a delicate touch and vast experience - and I told everyone in the office that 'I had the perfect photographer for the job'. And she was. Working with Wendy felt like I was watching a master class in photography. The results were beyond anyone's expectations. Everyone at Universal was delighted. It was definitely worth the wait!"

"I worked with Wendy on a story for Perfect Bound magazine. It was a long, chaotic day, photographing lots of children, as well as parents and community leaders. Nothing at the venue was as we expected, and Wendy had to improvise a pop-up studio as well as deal with large numbers of people, all with their own agendas and demands. Knowing her work, it was no surprise that the pictures turned out well. But it was also an enjoyable day, which was unexpected. Wendy worked brilliantly under pressure, getting the best out of the children, reassuring the parents, staying calm and dealing gracefully with problems that would have had many photographers throwing their hands up in despair. The job could have been a nightmare, instead it was a joy. I really hope we get to work together again."
