A little about me.
My professional career began as an actor. After graduating from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, I spent a year working in rep at Dundee Theatre. I then went on to tour the UK as Roberta in The Railway Children, made my West End debut as Miss Casewell in The Mousetrap and my TV debut in Hollyoaks.
As an actor I learned the art of crafting a compelling story, to trust my instincts and to always be prepared.
Two years into my acting career, I taught myself how to use a camera with the aim of keeping my creativity alive when not acting. My photography grew from taking photos of friends in my 8-bed house share in North London, to working for the BFI and co-founding the "Creatives of London" project.
Photography has taught me the power of play, composition, light, energy and empathy.
Enter the Pandemic, an unexpected curve ball for us all. With 'people-centred' photography suddenly a 'no-go', I began working as a Creative Brand Manager for a wellbeing start-up called T-Cup Studios.
Working at T-Cup Studios, I learnt the value of good communication and the skills needed to tell digital stories on social platforms, at pace while not compromising on content quality.
Fast forward to 2021, I'm looking to work with new collaborators; people who share my passion for telling stories, whether that's through photography or film.
I value kindness and empathy while encouraging creative and playful thinking in my approach to every project.
You don't know what you've got until you start... so let's get started.
I'm ready when you are.
My name is actually Millie, not Mildred. However, many of my friends end up calling me Mildred at some point so I've always seen it as a sign of people getting to know me, feeling comfortable around me and recognising that I don’t take myself too seriously.
Midred also means "gentle strength" in Old English, which I feel encapsulates my approach to life.
