Tim Dixon, Editor, Western Daily Press, 2010-2014
Clare has taken many, many great photographs for the Western Daily Press – across all the themes that matter to the newspaper and our readers: people, farming, politics, sport, the environment, business, the military, our heritage and our history here in the West Country.

She is well organised and efficient, which means we could have total confidence in her ability to deliver on any assignment, wherever it was in the region. From military manoeuvres on Salisbury Plain to iconic rock music performances at Glastonbury Festival and top flight Premiership rugby at Bath’s famous Recreation Ground, Clare has covered them all with great professionalism and enthusiasm – and always the end product has been stunning photography.

Her work speaks for itself but I’m delighted to speak in glowing terms about her other qualities: her professionalism, attention to detail and great passion for her work.
