Vanessa Sharples

I'm a photographer based in Lytham St. Annes, Lancashire but I spend a lot of time travelling around ski resorts, especially during the winter months.

I have shot some wonderful and prestigious winter sports events including the European X Games, World Championships and I have been the official ski action photographer at the British Championships for the last 2 years. Hopefully I will be able to shoot the Olympics in Russia in 2014! I have also been lucky enough to work with some of the leading sports brands including Oakley, Salomon, Animal clothing and the Chill Factore.

I love shooting freestyle skiers as they make such beautiful shapes in the air and the dramatic scenery can make an evocative backdrop. As a hobby I like to photograph my friends children and the fylde coast landscapes, particularly Lytham St. Annes, which is where I grew up. Underwater photography is also great fun.
