Thanks for stopping by…

Here is a little bit about me and a few of the important things in my life…

I guess not too many people can say, “I love my job”.  I am just so lucky, photography is my passion. Whether I am taking pictures for a client or for myself, there truly is nothing that I would rather be doing.  I’m never very far away from a camera or my phone.

I have always been creative and had more than a keen interest in photography since my teens.  I studied journalism at London College of Printing and, at that time, realised I had an eye for a shot and a love of the darkroom.  Not long after this I found myself running the studio of advertising photographer, Gary Bryan in Central London.  Little did I know then that this would provide a great base for my own business, Sarah Cook Photography.  I then took a few years out to raise my family.  I have two amazing kids.  Within a few years I was drawn back to the world of photography.  I soon enrolled myself at college, firstly in London and then in the United States, to learn my craft.  I haven’t looked back since….

It is always a privilege to document some of the most important moments in life.  I consider myself incredibly fortunate to be in a position where I share milestone events with my customers.  Whether it be a wedding, the arrival of a new baby or a special birthday.

If you need a special image or are planning a wedding, please get in touch I would love to hear about it.

I love…

These days you can find me in beautiful West Wales.  I live on a smallholding with my partner, Dora my black lab, five sheep, two piggies and several chooks.  It is always a special place to come home to.

Although, I am now based near Aberystwyth,  I have lived and travelled to some amazing places in my life.  My years in New York and Arizona spawned my love for photography.  I still miss that beautiful desert light.  I also spent many years living and working in the South of England.

I love nature and the countryside and when I am not busy on a commission I can usually be found walking on the beach or in the mountains.  In the last few years I have enjoyed creating a catalogue of personal images.  These include local flora and fauna, as well as the stunning landscape of West Wales.  You will find some of my work available as prints in my shop .
