Brennan gets appreciation from all corners

April 1st, 2014 — 4:24pm

Thirty year old Laura Brennan from Ferring established her very own business named Cherry Red Photography in the year 2012. She now concentrates on family portraits, newborn babies as well as weddings. This year, she became a part of just 80 people to be honored by Guild Of Professional Photographers.

Becoming qualified calls for a rigorous assessment procedure as it is not just the photographic talent, but service has also been thought about as well. Mrs Brennan told that she did not really realize how much of a huge deal this was at first. She joined Guild of Professional Photography to back her up in her business and because she wanted to get a mentoring scheme set up so that she could improve more.

She added that when she handed her twenty snaps, she was told that she did not require a mentor. She was also told that she was better than others. That came as a surprise because she is her worst critic. Still she is just more than thrilled to have gotten this recognition. Now, it is really wonderful to see her hard work paying off and being appreciated. She is thankful to her family members, friends as well as clients for their continuous encouragement and support. To get something like this is really amazing.

Mrs Brennan analyzed A-level white and black darkroom photography after she attended Davison High School for Girls. It was not till the year 2007 when she purchased herself an SLR shooter when she started thinking about pro photography.
