Task 1a LO2.1 What do i believe in

What do I believe in?

That you should do things for the right reasons, not because  people think that you should do it Because of money. In their minds things can be so different.So how fare would I go. It would have to be something good for me to go that easter mail like clime up a cliff. If it doesnt put people in danger I will think it throw

If it was a photo I am going to get paid a lot of money for and its not dangers I would have to think about long and hard.

I think it’s should be All do the some .

Freelance photography

I like to stand back and ponder experiences and observe them from many different perspectives.

Career-path is Wildlife, Nature, studio/commercial

I love been outdoors and this allow me to do this.

  • setting up photographic equipment
  • taking pictures
  • editing and retouching images
  • choosing and setting up locations
  • reproducing and framing photographs
  • promoting business (especially if self-employed)
  • researching and making contacts
  • general administration.



I had a chance to do photography when I did my A-level ART but family life /working got in the way at the time.

After going to the camera club I decided to take up the HNC course at Bradford College.

This is such a fantastic course to do.

When I pass my course I am going to do a full time job in freelance photography.

I love the great outdoors It’s no wonder that outdoor photography is so popular when so many subjects fall under the umbrella.

I go out ever day if I can I have got a little grandson that I tack on my journeys trying new things.

I am learning all the time on how to do things on my photography’s

The outdoor Magazine as got lots of tips for you to try out.

Tips for the garden, wildlife, photographing bird portraits and bug safaris; location shoots for deer, seals, puffins and butterflies; and a selection of inspiring images from Wildlife Photographer of the Year.

I like this photographer.  ( Paul Hobson wildlife photographer) (

Photography is very interesting. Photographers can put a smile on anyone face. At times tacking photos of people make them happy when they see the final photo. If we go out walking and snapping with camera in our hands we get nice shots and some funny looks.

I have just done these tow my self.



These are some of my final images on wildlife.

Task 2.2 – Qualities

Identifying the key roles and qualities for the photographer within my chosen industry.

I feel one of the qualities needed for a photographer in any chosen areas (Wildlife)  is patience.  You could take a thousand shots, but only one have that something special!

Other qualities are an eye for detail and to be able to compose that shot.  You can post process to your hearts on content but if the composition isn’t there, it won’t be right.

Having said that, post-processing skills are needed to be able to bring out the best in the images.

I feel I have learnt a lot about Lightroom and Photoshop in the two years of this course and know that I will learn every day going forward.




Task 1c – Career Plan

Having researched the different genres of photography, I feel I enjoy landscape, wildlife and studio work.

As a full-time foster carer, this is something I can do which fits around my career and that I can use this time as reflection time at a time which suits me.

A career path that would not suit me would be one that was time restrictive such as a news and current affairs photographer.  Although this would be interesting this is not something that my lifestyle would allow.


Task 4b – Publicity

I have produced a self-promotional business card which I would display and distribute to  publise me and my photography.
