Don't worry I shan't bore you with my life story!!
Just a bit about how I got to where I am and how I plan to move forwards.
I qualified as a Nursery Nurse and spent 15 years as a Nanny working with various families and took many pictures of the children over the years with my trusty camera with me most of the time.
I started out with the good old Kodak film cameras - cheap as chips but expensive to get developed. I used to borrow my Mother's camera, we have books of albums with hundreds of photos, one thing we don't need to worry about anymore is storage.
At 21 my Dad bought me my first Canon film camera (digital didn't really exist then, this was 1998)..... I used that camera for 10 years and it served me well. It took me through my Art and Design course when I went back to college at the age of 26.
I planned on going on to do an HND in photography after finishing my course but life took me on a different path and it never happened. I stayed in my Nannying positions until I decided to change my job in 2008.
My job hunting didn't go that well and I ended up working with my then partner (now husband) running his motorcycle business - I have been there ever since!! Twelve years on it is time to challenge myself of which I have steadily been doing for the past two years.
These two years has been difficult, deciding how I was going to progress and exactly what it was I wanted to accomplish and which path my photography would lead me down. I have learnt a great deal about myself and what I want. I have changed my mind on more than one occasion but I always come back to horses. Having to be the most natural thing I can do, work with what you are passionate about. It has been lockdown that has given me vision and clarity and I can't wait to get moving forwards next year!
Watch this space......
My work is my pride and joy and I look forward to creating some beautiful pieces next year for some marvellous clients.
