British Heart Foundation Portrait

Guy and his very beautiful Collie dog Brave. This portrait was shot for the British Heart Foundation Magazine 'Heart Matters'. Guy was only 29 when he was diagnosed with a heart valve problem. He was fit and active, training as an amateur boxer when he started struggling with exhaustion and heart pain. Guy has written about his experience over on the BHF website.

A recent  portrait, shot for the British Heart Foundation.

This is Trevor, a retired psychological therapist who suffered a heart attack in mid 2014 aged 59. Trevor lives in a beautiful part of the world on the North side of Dartmoor National Park. As a keen hiker who was regularly out trekking, Trevor's heart attack took him and his family by surprise, happening whilst he was relaxing at home..

I spent a fun afternoon chatting and snapping portraits of Trevor around his home and garden.. The above image wasn't used in the end but it was my favourite from the set.
