Well I thought I’d share a bit of my photography and marketing background with you, so here goes.

I first got into photography as a child, but didn’t get my first proper SLR camera until my late teens, then that was me I was hooked so to speak. I did my first wedding at 21 and it scared the hell out of me, I don’t think I got a wink of sleep the night before.

At 27 I went on to join the military and served as a Royal Navy Photographer. The training was hard and intense but the job satisfaction was out of this world. I worked on many high profile jobs, doing amazing things I never would have had the chance to do in civilian life including photographing many celebrities, Heads of State and several members of the British Royal Family.

After 9 years service I decided it was time to leave the Armed Forces to set-up my own Wedding and Portrait Photography Company. I thought that my photography was of a fairly decent standard but if I really wanted my business to succeed I knew I’d need to work on my marketing, so I enrolled on several marketing courses and soon I’d got the marketing bug, I loved it.

Within 18 months the Wedding and Portrait business was turning well over £100,000. We had a separate Commercial and PR Photography Company that was equally as busy, plus a School and Nursery Photography business that had over 60 contracts on its books. Two years later we were averaging over 80 weddings per year and ran one of the busiest Boudoir Photography Makeover Studios in the country. All of this was achieved through branding, marketing and social media, without marketing I would never have achieved the success I did.

I now help photographers around the world to achieve their goals and live their dreams with my 6 Steps to Success Photography Marketing and Mentoring Program.
