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

In 2012, I met one of the best wedding photographers in the UK , Mike Garrard. His style, enthusiasm and approach to innovative photography and editing really inspired me to pursue my own passion in this field. He became a great mentor to me and a source of inspiration when I needed one.

I run Zibi Photography on my own, as I never want to lose the personal, intimate touch that I offer to my clients. This goes a long way in earning their trust and putting them at ease on the day on which it counts the most.

Had you always wanted to be a photographer?

For me, this adventure of a lifetime really began in 2006, when my interest in landscape photography was piqued. As I began to experiment and learn I found that the camera became a part of me and my life; it changed my outlook and began to mould my future. From there it evolved naturally into wedding photography.

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

I was 10 years old when my dad gave me my first camera; an old-style Kodak. I was so excited and began taking photographs of everything around me – from flowers to family. One of the first pictures that I took was of my beloved grandmother in the kitchen, baking my favourite walnut cake.

Which areas of the UK do you cover?

I cover the whole of the UK, and I photograph destination weddings all over the world. This gives me an opportunity to travel, but also to learn about the wedding customs and utilising the available backdrops (some of which can be quite different to those in the UK) to create the best possible image.

Interview with: Harriet Letheren

Company Name: Twirly Girl Photography

Location / Coverage: Wiltshire/South West

How did the business get started and who works at Twirly Girl Photography?

Twirly Girl Photography started by accident really! After getting a camera and playing around with some friends I started getting asked to take photos for people who had seen my work. It had always been a dream to have my own photography company, but I didn’t for one second think it would happen as quickly as it did. I now have my own studio with loads of shoots and weddings to look forward to.

Had you always wanted to be a photographer?

I originally started on the other side of the camera as a competitor in pageants. When I retired from that I found I really missed being involved with the camera in one way or another. I’d always had an eye for photography and was very artistic in school, but it was only when I picked up a camera for the first time that I realised it was what I was meant to do. I just never dreamed it could become a full-time profession.

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

The first time I felt I had a flair for photography was when I was on holiday in Mallorca when I was 18, and took an interesting picture of a tree on the beach – I just wanted to show it off to the world!

Which areas of the UK do you cover?

I currently work across the south west, but would love to broaden my horizons and combine an element of travel with photography.
