From Pursuit to Passion to Profession

Please note: Until further notice, our weekly meetings will take place online with Zoom. We will run as many meetings as possible, subject to speakers being able to present in that format.

This talk tells the story of how Ashley the amateur snapper became Ashley Franklin Photography which now offers a wide spectrum of professional services.

In Part 1, we chart Ashley’s progress through the camera club world.

In Part 2, we see how he ventured into the commercial sphere.

Ashley would not have become a professional without the stimulation and inspiration he picked up as a member of Derby City Photographic, so this presentation is a celebration of the camera club ideal as well as a journey into the world of a professional practitioner, with all its perils, pitfalls, triumphs and rewards.
