When did you launch the brand and what was the reason behind it?
I became a professional Photographer in 2011 after gaining a 2:1 Degree in BA Hons Photography studying in my home town Carlisle at the University of Cumbria.
I decided to go to University later in life at the age of 26, after backpacking and traveling around the world visiting various countries, meeting lots of people from different walks of life, which you would not normally have met everyday. Which inspired me to make a career out of my passion and love of Photography. With leaving school at 16 going straight into the working world i had to do a 1 year foundation photography course to then qualify to get on the 3 years BA Hons Photography Degree course.
Graduating at the age of 30, realising your never to old to learn and change your career path coming up 35 years old now being self employed,happy with my lifestyle / work (Photography Business).
