Hi, I'm Joanne and I am a photoholic
Photoholic – Someone who is addicted to taking photos.
I’m a French Canadian based in Cheshire. I moved to the UK in 2000 to be with my husband (we met on the internet before this was a normal thing to do!)
It was over twenty years ago that I discovered my passion for photography. While studying for a Marketing degree, part of the curriculum was a photography course. That is when I first got the bug for photography.
For the past 6 years I have been experimenting with different types of photography (landscape, macro, product photography,etc).
It was horse photography that really got me fired up when I adopted my horse Badger. He has inspired me to work professionally with animals and people to create life long memories for my clients.
“As a perfectionist I only take on a limited number of commissions each week (2 to 3). As I always deliver the best quality end product I invest a minimum of fifteen hours work for each client.”
Random Facts About Me
- I have two cats, one guinea pig and a horse (we like going on fun rides). My horse Badger is on the left!
- I attend a few photography workshops every year to continually improve.
- I talk with a silly voice to my animals!
- I used to be a software developer.
- Unlike many photographers, I work full time as a photographer and rely purely on my earnings to make a living. That makes me appreciate each of my clients and strive to offer them my expertise and skills to a higher level.
- I travel worldwide for my commissions, however most of them are located in Cheshire, UK.
- I dislike talking on the phone and get very nervous (you are warned !)
- When I don’t work, I like to go to the yard and relax with Badger.
- I don’t like to be late so I’m always too early !
- I eat to many biscuits !
If you have any questions or would like more information, it’s very simple just contact me !
