Whist working on my HND I set about freelance work before opening my studio 2 years later. I owned the studio for 8 years in which time I built up a client base that I have retained to this day. I also owned a High Street photographer’s business with a turnover of £580k a year and employed 9 members of staff. During this time I also continued my commercial work. Please find listed some of the skills employed over this period.
