Photography is everything to me, it has saved my life. Make my dreams come true and allow me to kickstart a career in doing something I love and by doing something people have told me I’m talented at.
This project if successful will allow me to kick start a photography business, making my dreams come true and allowing me to take my much-admired talent to the next level. In recent months I have used photography as an act of mindfulness & therapy to enhance my wellbeing following a near fatal overdose which saw me hospitalised for Christmas 2017. Since throwing everything into my photography in 2018 I have been recognised as talented through competition votes, local media and my debut exhibition in Birmingham city centre. I have sold several of my photos already and am finding myself and my work in demand.
This project will allow me to properly launch my photography. This includes setting up a website with e-shop, acquiring business cards, producing branded clothing to wear when out photographing to advertise the business, advertising my services, making a formal proposal, producing more prints, booking onto craft fairs to sell my products at & producing a 2019 calendar of which 50% of sales from will go to a mental health charity.
