Further information on this great income source.
I have been a photographer since I was 16 starting with film cameras, processing and printing my own films as a teenager and then becoming a professional photographer in 2003. I have wide experience of shooting weddings, portraits and commercial photography at a professional level both using film and digital equipment and I enjoy shooting street photography on my Iphone in my spare time as well!
I also have a professional teaching qualification from Cambridge University and I have taught photography alongside my other work in schools to a wide age range of children as well as at A level to more mature students.
