After gaining a Biological Imaging BSc Hons 2:1 degree at university and before setting up my photography business, I worked in television production. During this time I was commissioned by clients including the BBC and Channel 4. I worked as a Director & Camera-women on several programs and travelled as far as New Zealand, Brazil and Portugal to film documentaries for the BBC.
It was a natural progression for me to develop my still photography, so I decided to setup my business Hepburn Photography in 2005 and have been working full time as a Photographer ever since. Over the past few years I have also been making short films for social media and documentary projects.

"Nanette is more than a wonderful, talented and creative freelancer photographer/film maker – Nanette feels like a part of my team and is great to work with. Nanette’s beautiful photography has secured great coverage for us in the press and Nanette’s social media films are driving business performance for us as we’re generating more and more reach on Facebook and Twitter from residents liking and sharing the films that Nanette produces for us. Nanette has an amazing talent for building a rapport with everyone she meets and putting them at ease, which enables her to capture magical photos of people from all backgrounds, abilities and ages. Thank you so much Nanette – you continue to produce fabulous work within tight timescales for a range of very different briefs which our community and colleagues love."

"Nanette is a wonderful photographer. Not only does she take great pictures but she also has a wonderful way with clients, which is a priceless attribute. Nothing is too much trouble. She is creative, imaginative and painstaking. Nanette also has a cheeky sense of humour which is a breath of fresh air.
Her pictures of The Crown at Whitebrook James Sommerin Michelin Star Restaurant for example, are so brilliant you can almost smell and taste the food they are that good."
David Barnes, Owner of DB Public Relations
"I have yet to commission Nanette Hepburn on a project and not have her exceed my expectations. The brief I gave her for the Cedar Care Homes project was loose to say the least. We needed strong positive images of the residents and staff and I wanted Nanette to capture moments of joy a far from easy task in this environment. Nanette's calm and friendly manner instantly put the residents at easy. The resulting photographs have proved to be very successful in imparting a real sense of what life in one of the Care Homes would be like, and so have provided an accurate and effective marketing tool."

"I like to work with Nanette because she understands exactly the type of shot I need. She has a great rapport with people and is completely unobtrusive when taking the shots. Nanette is particularly skilled with taking shots of people and action. I can't really fault her and she is my number one choice for photographic work.
Carol Williams, Tourism Growth Office Brecon Beacons National Park Authority
"Nanette's keen eye and enjoyment of her work have meant some fantastic images for us to use in our magazines."
