Photography has been my passion since I was a child – I owned an overworked Kodak Instamatic and learnt through mistakes! I took a degree in Visual Arts (B.A) at Staffordshire University as a mature student and used photography to illustrate scenarios to transmit the quality of figures in glass that I was producing at the time. Also the watery environments in which I lived on a boat. It worked quite well, and I was kept very busy after I graduated, teaching & providing arts activities in both photography and various crafts. As is often the case, my own photography addiction took a back seat, but others were encouraged to shine. Photography is as great 'leveller' for people of all abilities and I enjoy developing in 'Digital' mode as much as the old fashioned way!

Then I reached the age of 50! and decided that now was the time to take my own photos onto a different level. Now I was living in the Forest Of Dean, where the variations in light & weather are too beautiful to miss and this became the heart of my output. As you can see - a large proportion of this site is devoted to the atmospheres and moods of this unique and ancient landscape, both over and underground. Most of these photos are available as prints or canvasses from this site, but of course any photograph can be effectively applied to any product and prices are indicated on the Shopping Cart page.

I love taking all types of photos for anybody- both 'feral' and studio portraits. I hope that I've included a diverse range here. I always give my fullest commitment to a shoot to meet a individual requirements, and I am willing and able to provide high quality photos in most formats for Weddings, Sports events, Portraits and Work Place promotions. Please don't hesitate to contact me via this site, at tinadornerphotography@gmail.com or Phone: 01594 860062 and we can discuss your requirements in more detail.

Thank you so much for your interest, please enjoy the site!
