Music was my first love ...
Becoming a professional Pop photo-journalist in the Seventies was the most exciting time for me. It was when Glam Rock ruled the music scene and it was worth photographing people just for their costumes alone. Everybody who was "somebody" during this period I captured on endless rolls of film - Marc Bolan, Alvin Stardust, Mud, Slade, Wizzard, The Jacksons, Queen, Suzi Quatro,, Blondie, Cilla, you name them, I photographed them. Then as we moved into the 80s I photographed Kylie Minogue, Whitney Houston, Sinitta, Hazell Dean, Alison Moyet. Then came the 90s when I met Louise Redknapp (then Nurding), Helen Shapiro, Lee Ryan (Blue - but then a student at the local Performing Arts School). I even got to work with some of them several times, and even today I can still class people like Hazell Dean and Helen Shapiro as good friends. One of my closest friends Alvin Stardust, who I'd known for over 40 years sadly died in October 2014.

"Unlike most people in Show Business I always dread the thought of photo shoots, but there are some photographers who make it a loss less stressful and sometimes even 'fun'.
Rosie is one of those people."More testimonials
"Rosie has taken many photographs of me for various albums, etc. I'm not a good subject!!
I always ask 'How long is this going to take?'
Rosie is always good humoured and doesn't waste any time at the sessions and I'm always surprised and relieved at how quickly the sessions are done. Her speed doesn't take away from the quality of her work though.
She's a smashing photographer and a smashing lady."More testimonials
"The first time we met I had been told to expect this interviewer for a couple of very important "Teeny" magazines. Then this 'tiny teenager' arrived at my dressing room door.
She was very nervous and we were wondering how the interview would turn out; never mind the pictures she took with her little camera.
We were knocked out with the results, so were the magazines and it wasn't long before 'Little Rosie' became famous among the upper echelons of the pop glitterati; and she's still going strong.”More testimonials
