How did your business start and who works at James Griffiths Photography?
James Griffiths Photography really grew in 2015 when my wife and I had our daughter, Erin. I wanted to build a business for the family, doing something I am passionate about, which would complement family life. I’m so pleased with how quickly things have developed.
My wife, Ria, is involved with admin and marketing for the business, and Erin, who is nearly three, usually has some opinions to share!
Had you always wanted to be a photographer?
I’ve always been a photography enthusiast, but I actually started my paid career in construction and worked for many years completing measured building surveys. I then diversified into selling and demonstrating high specification camera equipment. This was when I started to seriously consider photography as a profession, rather than a hobby.
Can you remember how old you were when you took your first picture? What was it of?
I remember taking pictures of our family dog, Duncan. I’m not sure exactly how old I was – probably about eight. Sadly Duncan couldn’t see very well so I don’t think he knew he was posing for a picture.
