I have been in photography ever since I studied it at college when I was 16 years old. I used to spend all my time in the darkroom playing with images and learning everything I could – yes, I guess I was a bit of a geek! But those early days gave me my passion for photography. I was very inexperienced but it gave me an opportunity to push myself.
For years I worked in the photographic lab side of the industry, working my way up to manager and training my staff to adhere to strict principles of quality when producing people’s photographs – doing so gave our store the opportunity to win an award for quality. It was back in 2011 that I decided to start a photography business, originally called ‘Inspired Photography’ it was 3 years later in 2014 that I renamed it to Ahuvi. Today I am more passionate about photography than ever.
