I quit my job to follow my heart …

After ten fabulous years in fashion magazine PR including two years working as Head of PR at the NET-A-PORTER Group, I have scarily but excitedly quit my job to pursue a freelance career as a photographer, PR consultant and writer.

Yesterday I had the most amazing send off from the team at PORTER and The EDIT magazines who produced this brilliant cover…Thank you guys!


My next adventure includes two months’ in Africa photographing elephants for Save The Elephants, looking after baboons, cheetahs and wild dogs at a wildlife sanctuary, volunteering at a research centre and training and riding horses in Namibia.

I have no idea what will happen beyond mid January but am keeping my options open, staying positive, living in the moment and following my heart.

Life is too short for anything else.

Wish me luck and please keep following my blog as I begin the adventure of a lifetime!


  1. I just returned from travelling and fell in love with travel and wildlife photography whilst I was away. From a young age I have always wanted to work in fashion and have been right up until I left in February and I was adamant that I would carry on once I got home.
    Now that I am back I am more confused than when I left due to concerns of not feeling like I have got far enough in my career and the regular pay checks etc, but reading your post on Refinery really has inspired me to make a change.
    I hope you have an amazing trip and I look forward to seeing your posts!

    1. Thank you for your comment Jade. Yes, making a decision and trying to figure out which way to go can be a very daunting experience. However I’m sure whatever you decision you make will be the right one. Listen to that little voice and trust your intuition. I’m pleased my piece inspired you and I wish you all the best for your future, Jane.
