Interview with: Ruth Merrington

Company Name: Red Door Photography

Website: www.reddoorphotography.co.uk

Location / Coverage: Based in Surrey, covering Surrey, Hampshire, Berkshire and beyond

How did the business get started and who works at Red Door Photography?

Red Door Photography is Ruth Merrington and Debbie Stevens. We met whilst working in a high street photolab, and were starting to feel like we were stuck in a rut. We had been talking about setting up a business for years, and when Debbie had her first child and I was made redundant, we decided to go for it; we haven’t looked back since.

Had you always wanted to be a photographer?

I always had an interest in photography, I got that from my dad, but it wasn’t until I was looking through college courses I realised I could actually study it.

Can you remember how old you were when you took your first picture? What was it of?

My first real memory is from a trip to Australia when I was finally allowed to use my Dad’s AE-1 SLR; I couldn’t wait to get home and get the films processed.

Which areas of the UK do you cover?

We mainly cover Surrey, Berkshire and Hampshire, but have travelled further; we are more than happy, to travel.

Interview with: Victoria Fawkes

Company Name: Victoria Fawkes Photography

Website: www.victoriafawkes.co.uk

Location / Coverage: Kingston and surrounding Surrey area

How did the business get started and who works at Victoria Fawkes Photography?

In 2004, I was offered the chance of voluntary redundancy from my Event Management job in the City. I decided this was an amazing opportunity to go back to college and re-train to fulfil my dream of becoming a photographer. I enrolled on the Professional Photography Practice course at The London College of Communication and haven’t looked back since. I predominantly work alone, but do have some amazing assistants that come to help on the larger weddings.

Had you always wanted to be a photographer?

Yes, I was always the one with the camera at every party! I think I may have got the bug from my mum, who made it a personal challenge to always take a photo of every single person at her parties; this job was then passed to me. It’s great to have all those memories of great times!

Can you remember how old you were when you took your first picture? What was it of?

I can remember taking a camera on a trip to Prague. I was 16 and my grandma decided that I should spread my wings and see more of the rest of the world. We spent a weekend getting up to all the normal touristy things – exploring the Charles Bridge, visiting cathedrals… I vividly remember taking photographs of protesters that were on hunger strike, as the country had only just come out of communism. I still have those photos squirreled away in one of my many albums.

I am a Kingston based photographer and try to keep my work within a 25 mile radius, but do end up travelling nationwide sometimes!
