‘When people ask me what camera I use – I tell them my eyes’ – Anonymous
I started my working life many moons ago as a primary school teacher, teaching in Stepney in the East End of London, before following my first love, photography, specialising in Teen, Spotlight, and corporate shoots. I soon discovered that I was using my smartphone to take photos more than my DSLR, which only got an outing when I was on a ‘proper’ job. I also became very aware how much time and money businesses were spending on their social media imagery, when they could very easily do it themselves.
With my teaching background and my love of photography, the natural progression was to start running smartphone photography workshops for the corporate market and for personal photos too. Everyone has an amazing camera in their pocket – they just need to know how to use it properly, and with the rise in popularity of Instagram, the two go hand in hand.
