Opening Shop! My New Venture...

Guys. I'm writing a book!!! lol Just joking, I'm not jumping on the YouTuber/Blogger bandwagon. Not only do I have a tiny following, I cannot write to save my life and rely on spell checks far too much!

What am I alright at though, is taking photos. I've gone from taking hundreds of holiday photos, to studying it at A Level while working in a holiday camp as a photographer. Being a studio photographer in someone else's studio, going freelance doing band promos and modeling portfolios, to taking a National Diploma in photography at college and doing weddings and family portraits.
I then gave it all up.

Okay so what is the point? Well I've obviously never stopped loving taking photos, and my interest in wildlife, birding and nature photography has only grown stronger. So I've thought long and hard for months on how can I turn that love into my living (or part of), once more.
My calendars were one thing and I was surprised at their success, so the next step I am taking is...



...cards! Stationary for writing snail mail and greetings cards will be available in sets as well as singularly featuring a vast range of my photographs. As I have invested in my own high quality, large format photo printer I will be able to print to request so to say, rather than buy in an amount to sell. This means that you will be able to mix and match your sets of cards, personalize them and even ask for certain photos if you have seen any on my blog that you'd like.

They won't be listed on the Etsy, but I can also produce just normal photographic prints and poster prints for anyone that would like them, up to A3 size!

I hope that this will be of interest to some of you as I am forever receiving amazing comments on my nature photography that I can't thank you all enough for.


Check out my Etsy store here where you can buy pre-made sets.
Check out my Facebook page here where you can chose from photos you like to mix and match your own set to print! 
And while I'm on the subject of Facebook come and check out my blog page for more interaction, fun extras, quizzes and lots of sneak peeks!
