I'm Ruth - a Newcastle based photographer, specialising in natural, reportage style images.
I take my influences from documentary and street photography, using an observational eye to capture life as it happens. A subject's surroundings and interaction with these surroundings can often tell you more about them than when viewing the person in isolation. To me, these documentary style images are the most engaging and most memorable, and therefore something I wish to emulate in my own work.
With a background in art and design, I enjoy anything creative. I spend most of my spare time photographing my friends and family, documenting my own life and environment- a compulsion which has helped me develop and refine my work.
I am based in Newcastle Upon Tyne and am available for bookings across Tyne and Wear and Northumberland.
