Part-time professional (paid work)
In 2008, I completed a part time 2 year course at St Helens College. The course was called Total Photography. The tutor was impressed by my work and asked me to photograph a wedding with him. I found and made a friend with a local photographer and we worked together for 2 years shooting Weddings. When she immigrated to Australia with her family, I did a few weddings alone and then invested in backdrops and lighting. I did portraits, small family shoots, headshots for businesses and models, children, Cake smashes and New born photography. After a tragedy in my life, Photography had to take a back step but I continued it as a hobby and photographed landscapes and travel. Last year I was asked to shoot a wedding with another photographer and then another by a friend. I now have a part time job along with tv/film extra work and photography business. This is weddings and events but I'd also like to gain experience as a stills/film Photographer.
