Today is a very good day. Today I have become a Canon Ambassador
I am over the moon, having the opportunity to represent Canon on the world stage is something that I dreamt of when I started my family photography career but I hadn’t expected this dream to become a reality. Years ago, one of my photographic mentors gave me the advice to “Work hard and take great pictures, and then great things will happen”. I’ve worked hard, I like to think I’ve taken some great pictures and – wow! – a great thing has happened.
It wouldn’t have happened without my amazing family and friends, so at the risk of sounding like an Oscars acceptance speech, a huge thank you to everyone who has supported me, in particular my wonderful husband Tom. It also wouldn’t have happened without my fabulous clients, many of whom have shared the journey with me from my first professional shoots back in 2003 with their regular sessions over the years. Watching your children grow and recording their childhood in pictures has been a pleasure and a privilege, and I can’t wait for all the exciting things we will do together in the future as we continue to document their young lives in photographs for your walls and your albums.
Thanks to Canon for giving me this opportunity, I know we are going to build great things together and inspire many new photographers on their journey. Over the coming years, I will be helping Canon to engage with a wider audience, sharing my skills and experiences with professional photographers and keen amateurs alike to help them improve their photography. I will be posting more information about my role as a Canon Ambassador here on the blog in the future but equally, if you would like to join my mailing list then send me an email and I can keep you up to date with any speaking engagements.
For those of you who are new to my work, have a look around the site, at my portfolios and blog. You can also follow me on social media; on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Do stop by and say hello, and I look forward to meeting many of you online and in person over the coming months.
