One Year On...

28th August 2012

Earlier this month Martin J Patterson Photography Ltd celebrated its first anniversary in business. Of course, this is only the length of time I have been trading, I have been photographing as a hobby for a few years more.
I should imagine for everyone who embarks on a business adventure, the thought can be quite daunting. I was doubtful of success before I started out. Confident in my images yes, but would anyone else like them? Would anyone want to use my services? Would I be wrapping this company up before the first year is out? Thankfully the answers were yes, yes and no!
It's been a year where I have been busier than I ever imagined, received more compliments and kind words than I expected, and have photographed some lovely people, some of which I am now lucky enough to call friends.
I may not be taking the photographic world by storm, but I am more than pleased with my work and how things are going.


Of course, although I trade alone, I can't succeed alone, there have been many people along the way who have done their bit to help me out, the list is long so I won't name them all, but a few must deserve a mention;
As always my family for their support and encouragement, Tim for his sage words on finances and accounting (us creatives aren't naturally good with this kind of thing!), to Julie B & Jo M who helped me to believe, and of course to my long suffering photography widow, Clare, for all your love and support.

Finally, to all of you that have taken the time to visit my website, follow me on Facebook, comment on my images, spread the word, and to all my clients both past and present........a very big thank you!!

Here's to an even better second year!!
