“My working life was in print before I met Andrew Coe at the National Franchise Show in 2010 and talked about the possibility of fulfilling a life-long desire to become a professional photographer. After completing my training I opened my studio in Caversham in 2011 with a full diary of family and baby shoots.

The process in-between has been exhausting but exciting in equal measure. The initial training really does prepare you to be able to take professional-looking photographs. Like the others on my course I found myself dragging families and friends into makeshift studios at my house and even in their homes in order to practice my homework assignments. I was amazed at how good everyone thought my photography had become. Alongside the creative and practical camera work, the business training is second to none.

The basic grounding in establishing a photographic business and, more importantly, making it work through well thought out marketing and sales processes is absolutely essential. It just wouldn’t have been possible to set myself up in the time without this support.

Now I’m a Franchisee the level of support and guidance has actually increased. I get help from the Barrett & Coe team and particularly from other Franchisees, all of whom are happy to share their experience and knowledge either at regular group meetings or informally over a coffee. It’s a good position to be in, knowing that there are others in the group who are determined that both my photographic skills and business sense will be developed with equal emphasis.”

Ian’s ongoing success and praise for his work resulted in him being named as Barrett & Coe Photographer of the year in 2015.
