Claire draws her inspiration from almost everywhere – music, films, books, and artwork. She has traveled the world as an ice skater, worked in some of the biggest clubs as a dancer and DJ, and now loves creating illusions from behind the camera… the ultimate act of smoke and mirrors.
The three biggest passions in Claire’s life are her husband, her daughter, and her photography. Even though she works alongside some of the world's most in-demand alternative models, it’s Claire’s work with everyday women that really sparks her creativity. Watching women escape their daily lives and come alive in front of the camera is her biggest thrill.
A shoot with Claire is filled with laughter. She goes great lengths to get the perfect shot – that balance of light and dark, sexy and fun. She brings out the best in the women she works with.
To Claire, photography is a never-ending journey. It's a path of discovery not just of her art but of herself, too. Gaining both critical and commercial respect in her chosen field is amazing, but the real excitement comes in what happens next...
