How time flies, it only seems like yesterday that I left the civil service to start my new journey. In real time, it was 4 years ago and the year was 2014.
Following a 17 year career sat behind a desk and sometimes banging my head on the desk, I took up their kind offer of redundancy. Yes, it was a huge culture shock and it took me a little time to adjust to the real world, but looking back it was the best thing that I ever did.
For a number of years I had enjoyed spending my weekends, evenings and sometimes even before getting to work taking photographs. I enhanced my skills and knowledge and was even lucky to have a number of images published in both newspaper and magazines. The creativity, inspiration and freedom that I felt taking photos was addictive and one of the incentives why I decided to make photography my career.
I find that inspiration can come from anywhere and for me I can see a photo within a shot that others may not see.
Fast track four years to today, what can I say??
It’s been a great journey so far, met some wonderful and creative people and I’m building a business that I’m extremely proud of.
I couldn’t of achieved what I have, or got my business to where it is today without the help and support from my wonderful wife Sallyann and great friends and family.
Here’s to the next four years and the sky is the limit.
