Describe how you got into photography.
I have had a camera in my hand since I was four, that's a long time ago. Then 15 years ago I worked for a virtual tour company photographing business premises and schools which I loved. Then, I decided to take a couple of courses in Wedding photography/Studio Photography and haven't looked back. My life is now photography and wouldn't change it for the world.
