I did movie images in high faculty since it was always a passion of mine but still left that powering just after graduating to go with the circulation of daily life ( but by no means remaining the camera guiding of course…). The small business started out when I was designed redundant from a occupation I beloved. I knew I needed to do something I cherished just as a lot, so decided to eventually do what I experienced often desired to do complete time and that was to be a photographer. I assisted close friends back household in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada at a wedding day and realised this was it. I was unquestionably taken by the feelings, adore, and times of the day. Individuals fleeting times I had the chance to seize produced my heart so delighted.
When I obtained back to Glasgow from that excursion, I bought ideal into setting up our small business from scratch, even functioning for wedding day planners in Italy where I uncovered even a lot more about looking through light-weight and fell in love with it all above all over again. Scott, my partner and other fifty percent of the small business, was my assistant and second shooter at weddings and we before long realised (fortunately) that he experienced an eye for photography as nicely. In calendar year two of the enterprise, we bought so occupied he had to go away his work and there you have it!

He had the most wonderful genuine smile so I sent him an email.
We emailed back again and forth… he referred to as me by shock when which took me so off guard I fell off the couch! Accurate tale, haha!

A random bit of awareness about us… in 2008, just one yr immediately after going back again to Scotland, we went back again to Canada for a summer time holiday getaway to check out. My mom had found out that a dinosaur museum two hrs absent from our farm offered dig excursions so the full loved ones went for a day out.
My brother and I ended up beside ourselves with exhilaration (each in our mid-twenties at this position, haha). We have been dinosaur obsessed as children. I can even now try to remember specifically exactly where we were as a spouse and children when I noticed the 1st Jurassic Park and there were many summer season excursions to Drumheller in Alberta.
In any case, we bought to aid on a dig in a new spot, 10 minutes in I located a huge tooth. A person hour afterwards we had uncovered a great deal a lot more. It was a enormous locate as it turned out to be the second biggest mosasaur discovered in the region. I received to name it (I termed him Angus) and our locate ended up in the entrance site newspapers in Manitoba. It was wild! Our image was in the museum alongside with the tooth and other bits we found for decades. I also wrote a piece about it for Travel Manitoba. Now that they have uncovered him the pieces have been rejoined with the rest but it was good exciting! So there you have it, haha!
