Audrey's husband, renowned illustrator, concept artist and storyboard artist Brian McGee, owned the photography business from 2012 where Audrey worked as his assistant photographer on all of his sessions. However, due to his increasingly demanding film and TV work, it was decided that, with Audrey's love and passion for being behind the camera, that the business to officially handed over to Audrey who is now providing professional headshot and portrait services to individuals in the acting, fashion, music, portrait and music industry.
As a background, Audrey has been involved in the music, entertainment and associated industry for over 35 years and has worked for some prestigious and well known music industry orientated contact so has a vast experience in the world of music, fashion, beauty and entertainment.

Audrey also is a former "Miss Afro West Indies", a model, singer, songwriter, producer and emerging mixed media artist, and has been signed to two major recording and publishing deals in the UK with
Sir Peter Waterman, the owner of PWL Records and All Boys Music, as a singer/songwriter and then signed a major recording contract with Polydor Records.
Whilst signed at Polydor, Audrey also worked for MCA Records in London with the stellar and reputable major acts signed to the label in their London office as a Promotions Coordinator creating promotional tours, campaigns, liaising with key contacts at radio across the UK, and being a perfect Ambassador for MCA and the roster of artists.
The experience and wealth of wisdom Audrey acquired over the many years of working diligently in the business would allow her to be able to “marry” and see the workings of all facets and mechanics of both sides of the industry – as an artist signed to a label as well as the being an integral team member of a record label itself .
With the skills, experience and insight gained from her opportunities, and concentrated on applying these talents, Audrey formed her own label - Raja Records and released "Amazin/Stay"- to promote their product, devise marketing strategies and sell to record shops, distributors both domestically in the UK and abroad.

Paul and Linda were avid and enthusiastic art collectors and, it was here where Audrey would begin to acquire her love for abstract art and the appreciation of artistic interpretation.
