About Me - Polly 

' As a founder of regenerative wellness community Jolly Allotment, I know the value of my photography , empathy and experience when building a business that people love '
I have been a professional photographer for 20 years. Working for small, medium and large global businesses, press, magazines and publishing companies. Capturing people, places and events. Since starting Jolly Allotment in 2021 I have truly learned the value of what a good authentic photograph can do for the growth of your business and your connection with new clients to make sales. 
My mission is to capture the passion, personality and the beauty of your authenticity so people can see how brilliant you are and you can get more engagement, more press and more sales. 

My Story


I graduated with a degree in Fine Art Photography from Glasgow School of Art in 1999.

I started my commercial photography life as a wedding and events photographer. Growing up my family ran one of the norths most prestigious restaurants so I have always had a passion for how our food is farmed, cooked and eaten and you can often find me in the hustle and bustle of a live kitchen service snapping away. My photography company became 'Dynamic Pictures' for this reason I love to shoot all the action and emotion of a moment in time.

I have traveled the world capturing events and products and editorial shots for Newspapers Magazines and private companies and have a vast amount of experience. ​I lived in the French Alps for ten years capturing everything from the travel industry and snow sports professionals. 

I am now in North Yorkshire buts still work internationally when times allow. I am loving brining my big buissnes expertise and knowledge to Good people doing good things and helping them grow their brands with photographs and empowering workshops. 


What I love to capture most is natural authenticity. I use mostly natural light and love to shoot live action or immerse myself in the live action so I know how to replicate it for the perfect shot.
