Photography & Latest Photoshoot

For as long as I can remember, I've had a camera in my hand. I remember being at Colchester Zoo when I was around 11 years old and realising that whilst others around me were quickly snapping their photos, I was framing mine through the viewfinder of my little Kodak compact, desperately hoping the little penguin in the window would face me for that front on view, and he did! I was too excited to get home and upload the photos to see what they were like, it was then that I realised I might have a new favourite thing.

Nature was always my 'thing', I began my hobby uploading to a social networking site which over the course of a few years, led me to amass over 2 million views, and although looking back, my Photography really wasn't up to par, the fact I had a passion for it, completely overtook that, no one starts out being 'perfect' at something, and actually no-one ever ends up being perfect at that something either, but if you have that feeling of passion and excitement when it comes to a hobby, you keep doing it, just because it makes you feel so buzzy and happy!

So a few months ago I received a message, from someone who had seen my work and read this blog, and wanted me to join her team and be the Official Wedding Reporter Photographer for her website. Obviously I said yes very quickly and the cogs in my head began ticking away with ideas!

Since then I have had the most rewarding time, working with some amazing entrepreneurs and capturing their talents and passion from my perspective. My most recent shoot was with the lovely Lisa Caldognetto, a truly talented make up artist from Somerset who has not only worked with Maybelline but has created some of the makeup looks from London Fashion Week over the past 6 years! I really really enjoyed trying something new and have definitely found a new field I want to expand on with my portfolio! So do head over to my Photography website here if you would like to work together! To view the whole interview head over to The Wedding Reporter here.

And in no particular order, here are the shots from the shoot..
