This week at our Chester-le-Street studio we welcomed our newest member to the Photography For Little People franchise family, Gareth Coop. Gareth will be the proud owner of his own business in Brighton. Melanie from our Chester-le-Street studio lead the training introducing Gareth to his equipment, how to get the perfect shot and most importantly the safety aspect of photographing a baby as young as 4 days old.
Gareth had a few words about his training and how excited he is to get started owning his own business.
“In a word ‘Awesome’. I had an amazing week with Melanie at her studio in Chester le Street, it was pretty full on from the start with up to 3 shoots a day covering newborns, toddlers, a bumpshoot and impressions. I thoroughly enjoyed every part of it but particularly the newborn shoots, we were lucky enough to have a newborn at just 4 days new. I didn’t know what to expect from the training exactly but there was no time to think about that, we were straight in on the first morning with a lovely newborn baby boy.
“Melanie was not only great with the way she taught and instructed me but to watch her with all the little ones and the mums and dads was amazing, I learnt a lot from just watching her in action. And what really came across and something that I think is key to take away is it is always safety first, even if it takes longer, it must be safe, be patient and calm and it will happen.
“Now I am home and slowly digesting all of the information and setting about all the tasks in order to set up my new business, it is even more exciting and has left me chomping at the bit, I haven’t even seen my samples yet… I can’t wait to get started as Photography for Little People by Gareth – Brighton !! “
