I am thrilled that I have been selected to exhibit at the Retina International Photography Festival in Edinburgh this July 2017.
CHAMPION ROLLER SKATERS
A personal documentary photography project about Artistic Roller Skaters.
Debby Besford captures the dedication these young artistic skaters show for their sport and stand in glory in their home environments. Roller skating demands similar technical elements to ice skating; this Photo Essay captures a highly skillful yet forgotten sport.
This is an ongoing project.

Photographing my niece was such a special moment last summer. We both had so much fun together. I took some photographs of her in between much laughter and her incredible boundless energy. This portrait is Georgie looking at herself in a mirror – curious and silent. A wonderful and precious girl with a beautiful spirit.

I have been invited to contribute a series of photographs on a traditional barber and his shop as part of a book on barbers across the globe. Captain Fawcett’s Emporium is behind this fabulous book idea, http://www.captainfawcett.com/
Looking forward to seeing the final edit and once it’s published meet the other photographers and writers at the book launch. Keep you posted…
I am working on a series of portraits about the transitional stages teenagers experience with their identity and how their gaze suggests a detachment from the world around them.
I am very pleased to have the opportunity to meet Danielle who is an Artistic Champion Roller Skater. She is studying a Law Degree at present and is keen at weekends to continue her passion for skating and coaching. It was a pleasure to meet her and Danielle’s Mother, Amanda, and have the chance to photograph the skater in her family home. My documentary photography project is slowly taking shape now and I will be entering the second phase of it soon. Watch this space….

A great morning spent with the Raven Family – Freddie being the star of the show! It’s always fun and at the same time challenging to photograph youngsters with their parents. Fortunately, the girls had their portraits taken with me earlier in the year – but with the new addition they were back for more photographs with lots of giggles and a few chocolate treats – Freddie, the baby was oblivious to it all. What a cutie!
I have been shooting some a amazing performers in Norwich recently. A great location and something a little different for those of us who enjoy diverse and extraordinary performing arts.
Check out the website for Bohemia Norwich: more images to come from November show.
