About me

Cornish Photographer, Mother of two, living in Perranwell lover of all things creative.

Since leaving school I have always been adamant that l I would only be in a career that I was

truly passionate about. Back then, the ordinary 9-5 life didn’t appeal to me, or my lifestyle

with a newborn baby. I thought this is my moment; Photography. Something that wasn’t just

a hobby, but part of my life since I can remember. To turn this passion into a career would

be a dream. I decided to do a Photography Foundation Degree at Truro College, beginning

when my son Lorenzo, was 10 months old (I’ve learnt the hard way that university and

children do not go hand in hand!) Lorenzo was my main subject to photograph, until I tried

some fashion styles. The whole collaboration team of a make-up artist, hair stylist and model

really fascinated me. I went on to complete my third year at Plymouth University to achieve

a full Bachelors Degree. Once I’d graduated, I felt a huge sense of achievement – with a little

sigh of relief! Lorenzo and I took a 6 month vacation to the States; sweet home Alabama and

Florida to visit my relatives. My Canon camera was always clutched in hand whilst I

explored this part of the world. I’d never seen such beautiful sites in my life, with incredible

history and depth, with the added bonus of learning my own heritage and family history.

photographed some personal projects and new, unique faces of different ethnicities and

backgrounds. On my return to Cornwall, I settled back into a routine and I am now set up as

a Freelance Photographer. University not only helped me learn the technical side to

photography, but gave me the time to experiment with all aspects of personal and

professional imagery, whilst developing key skills in post production. I have a keen interest

in fashion and beauty and I believe this has given me the edge as a wedding photographer,

by being aware of the brides best angles and styles. As for my love of babies, well, that is

nothing new. Everyone that knows me, knows that I adore them, and having had the pleasure

of photographing nearly 1000 babies this year working in the maternity wing of Treliske

Hospital I have learnt how to capture special moments. Isabella Banks Photography is

growing and I love the journey it is taking me on.
