It's now been a year since I began the journey into a photographic business, although things haven't been up and running for long. It was the end of January 2013 when I began researching and developing a business plan to take to the Princess Trust Youth Business Scotland.
It's been a remarkable journey for me, understanding and learning the ins and outs of conceiving a business and nursing it into something tangible and sustainable. Photographic skills and abilities were never the problem given the decade of experience and continuous development - learning how to splice it with a bit of business acumen was the real challenge. Its a steep learning curve, hopefully it's an exponential one.
The last 12months have been hugely difficult at times but I am so proud to say that I have enjoyed every moment. Its absolutely amazing to wake up everyday to do something that you love, and to nurture it into pastures new in doing things that you would never have considered is just outstanding.
I would like to thank my friends, family and girlfriend for there incredible support, without whom everything would be near to impossible.
