Interview with: Dewan Demmer
Company Name: Dewan Demmer Photography
Location / Coverage: London, covering all of England
How did the business get started and who works at Dewan Demmer Photography?
Dewan Demmer Photography started because the thought of sitting behind a desk and not getting to do what I wanted and be who I was made no sense to me. So, one day I handed in my notice and walked away from a successful IT career to begin my business, and here I am.
The business is just me, and right now that’s perfect. It allows me the opportunity to get to know my clients personally and to find out exactly what they need from me.
Had you always wanted to be a photographer?
I believe so. When I was younger I was fascinated by the pictures people took and tried to learn from what I saw. I remember coming back from my first tour of Europe with more than twenty rolls of film to develop! I have taken the effort as time moved on to turn my appreciation into something more.
Can you remember how old you were when you took your first picture? What was it of?
I remember getting my first camera when I was probably about 15, and so, ironically, my first picture was probably of grass or something in my back garden.
Which areas of the UK do you cover?
I am happy to travel anywhere in the UK; some of the most interesting weddings are those that have me travelling around.
