A little bit about us
Where it started
It all began in 2007...
As a teenager (in the ’80s!) I had a keen interest in photography, but lacked the means to buy the equipment that I needed. So, I made a concerted effort to work, save and develop my technical skills. In 2007, having owned several early digital cameras, it was time to purchase a DSLR and really start honing my skills. I spent several years self-teaching outdoors on location, enjoying photographing landscapes in all weathers and learning how light changes the scene, affects colour casts within photos and composition. Someyears later, (even though highly critical of my own abilities), I contacted some professional network friends and found myself leading photographic workshops, teaching others how to capture landscapes and holding group workshops for major photography equipment manufacturers. Photography had become my passion and my escape; all of my free time was spent travelling to new destinations to find the perfect shot. I knew then that I wanted to be a full-time photographer, but how?
...and then came 2016.
Whilst being an enthusiastic and proficient photographer helps, having people skills and the ability to communicate are a must! After all, I work for my clients and want to get the best possible results for them. I learned a great deal about customer service in my former role as a pub landlord (12 years) and via connections in the trade. It also helps that I have an extensive knowledge of all things IT. Somehow the three things, photography, people skills and IT know-how, are a perfect fit for where my business is today. My passion became my profession through a recommendation, and the rest is history…!
I’ve been shooting properties for about 7 years and I love it as much now as the day I started. I get a real kick out of making a house look like the home that you want to live in.
