When I was in year 10 my Dad got sick - he had Oesophageal cancer. He was ill for almost two years and sadly passed away in the September when I started year 12, at the beginning of my A Levels. I had chosen to study History, Drama, Psychology and English, but near the end things went downhill rather quickly and I missed quite a bit of school around the time that Dad passed. When I went back I struggled to catch up with History, as I had missed too many names and dates, so I decided to change to Photography to add some creativity to my week.Having always been a lover of the visual arts, this ended up being my best A Level subject and enabled me to go to my first choice university, King’s College London, to study Film. Originally the plan was to get my degree under my belt and then do something Film related, but because King’s is an academic university I really missed the hands on, creative side of holding the camera, so I started coming home at weekends to photograph friends in the beautiful Kentish countryside. I continued to do this the whole way through my degree, but meanwhile was increasingly asked if I photographed weddings, how much I would charge for a family photoshoot and more. I realised that people really wanted to pay me for the thing I loved doing the most, so on the day I handed in my dissertation I booked my first paying client and the rest is history. It seems that the universe thrust me down a path that I didn’t expect to go down, but I really feel that it’s the path I was meant to be on. Now I get to spend my time capturing life’s special moments, witnessing so much love and happiness, and I couldn’t ask for a more fulfilling job.
