Describe how you got into photography.
Through my dad's gift of his old 35mm camera. I really got interested when I became a mother. I fell in love with photography when photographing my son & seeing his personality shine in my viewfinder. I returned to film photography when studying as a mature student at the Kent Institute of Art & Design & then Ravensbourne. 12 years ago I went digital with my first DSLR learning new techniques & I started building my own full time business about 5 years ago.
