A story of a photographer
This is me a few years ago building the infinity wall and studio space in Walkden, 3 years after deciding to make this my full-time job. I was teaching at the University of Salford and raising my twin sons on my own, photography was my the only creative outlet I could find the time for. I was known to my colleagues and students for always having a DSLR with me that I was fiddling with. In fact, I've always had a camera with me.
My Mum used to photograph cars for Auto Trader magazine in the 1980s and I would go with her in the school holidays and sometimes she would let me take the polaroids while she filled out the details. Now I think about it, I've been a professional photographer for 32 of my 42 years... While messing about pretending to be a teacher and other silly jobs... Hmmm.
All this was around the time I met my biggest fan, Jessica. She believed in me as a photographer and gave me the confidence and support to try to do this full time. Now here we are, married, with 2 sets of twins (5 children in total) a crazy dog and a Portrait Photography Studio.
God loves a trier...
