Interview with: Jude Middleton
Company Name: Jude Middleton Photography
Location / Coverage: UK and destination
How did your business get started and who works at Jude Middleton Photography?
I decided to change careers after being made redundant from my job when I was pregnant, nine years ago. I went back to college to study photography soon after my daughter was born, and worked for a while with one of the students I met there. With my own style developing more and more it was time to branch out on my own, and so Jude Middleton photography began.
Had you always wanted to be a photographer?
I had always wanted to work creatively, but life took over and I ended up taking jobs to pay the bills and make a living. It took a while for me to figure out photography was what I wanted after dabbling in science, music and drawing, but it has the right mix of geek culture and prettiness, and I find it immensely satisfying on many levels.
Can you remember how old you were when you took your first picture? What was it of?
I remember always having a tiny point and shoot with a square, four use flash bulb. I took it on holidays and school trips and always had plenty of photos, and I always got a buzz from seeing the films come back developed.
