Photography has been one of my interests for over thirty years but it was only after my dad's sudden death three years ago that I decided to take it more seriously - for example, I would never claim to "be a photographer" but just someone who took photos.
A funny thing happened along this road - the more I experimented and learned - the more challenging and appreciative I became of others work - photographers, models, how light works, the technical aspects, the creative aspects and so on.
The result is that what was once a part time hobby has increasingly became an obsession and passion, and out of that consumed mind the idea that I could start to do this stuff professionally - even if it only pays for itself in equipment and time.
BUT there's also more than that - photography is the gift of an image that the person, the muse, enjoys - that they share and others enjoy. Unlike video, photography is just so immediate - split seconds to tell a story, to engage your viewer, to create an emotion.
Note: Don't get me wrong, I love our video stuff - there's nothing more powerful then the moving image.
Interestingly, the more you develop, you then start getting requests for quotes, a business begins to form.
Which then leads onto something I do tend to know a bit about - creating new businesses and marketing.
So, here is a bit of road map on how the photography business has developed thus far.
So, this is where we are at right now.

What I really found fascinating about the 99 Designs process was the competitive creative elements in real time (watching designers borrow and learn from others) and the ability to easily spread and share the design options with my friends and fans.
