Ex physiotherapist Rebecca Barclay, who was one of our successful students in 2013, started her own photography business in June 2015.
Rebecca, a mum of two, completed the portrait course in December 2013 and commented at the time: “I’ve really enjoyed the course and have learnt more than I anticipated. Overall, I’ve gained the skills and confidence to take professional images – thank you!”
Rebecca started taking Emma’s Diary data (providing customers with baby photography) from July 2015 and now works from a studio, focusing her photography on Newborn, Toddlers and Children.
She has been successful in 2015, achieving her Licentiate qualification with the prestigious Master Photographers Association (MPA), as well as gaining a Merit Award with the MPA for one of her baby images.
She has also had a number of winning entries in the Baby of the Month Competition.
“I’ve been planning for a long time to get things together. Initially, I worked on location or visited client’s homes as I didn’t have a studio, and would return to their house for the viewing, taking with me a projector, screen and iPad with a slideshow and my product list with Emma’s Diary offers on it.
It is such an honour to be given the chance to capture memorable images of children as
they grow up
Pursuing my passion for child photography after 12 years as a Physiotherapist is a wonderful thing. It is such an honour to be given the chance to capture memorable images of children as they grow up.
Now I have my own studio which is great!
I have lots of soothing techniques to help me create special images for parents to cherish. A huge, enormous thank you to Andrew and the team for everything. My training with you has given me the foundation to push on in the incredible world of portraiture. Really exciting stuff!”
