Stroud Storytelling

I work with all sorts of people to express themselves, through beautiful visual imagery. Photography tells wonderful stories for families, businesses and communities alike. I use natural light, strobes and continuous light to create meaningful pictures that you will treasure.

Lucy Stanway, Stroud

Stroud photographer with her daughter

I’m a photographer now but it’s not where I started! In my 20’s I organised public philosophy events at the London School of Economics. In my 30’s I studied psychology and mental health science and worked in research, at University College London in their Division of Psychiatry. 

Photography is a way of life. I love to take pictures and I’m very lucky to be pursuing this passion as a job. I photograph people in many different spaces and share my passion for creativity in schools and in workshops.

I’m really interested in the therapeutic benefits of creative hobbies and hope to get back to research once we’ve settled our family in Stroud.
