Building a small photography business bit by bit

Building a small photography business bit by bit.

Just happened to come across this whilst looking for something completely different on FaceBook – why does that happen ?.

Steven seems such a level headed guy, of which there are many thousands of others all over the UK. Building his business from the ground up – bit by bit but always focusing on the quality of the  output.

About Steven steve rooney

I’m a husband and father of 3 beautiful children and I  have more hobbies and interests than I have time for. My family  means the world to me. I eat a lot of chocolate, drink tea and enjoy sports.

I love to run when I have the chance. We have a dog called Buddy (the kids named him). I’ve been to University twice, once in Liverpool and once in Manchester. I studied Art, Photography and Teaching.

I’ve been into photography for as long as I can remember. But only started shooting in a professional capacity around ten years ago. I worked as a primary school teacher and then took a job with an FE college before moving to a career taking photographs of people to pay my bills. I also deliver training and mentoring to other photographers.
