So here I am, 10/04/12 I'm working full time in a care home close to where I live and work is okay but I still constantly think about being a professional, full time photographer. I stopped working for Pixifoto after a year as I felt I had learned what I needed and I wanted a new challenge. I used the forthcoming 8 months learning as much as I could about starting up a photographic business from insurance and branding to registering for tax and understanding VAT. I finally registered myself as a sole trader on the 6th of April 2012 for the new tax year and I am hoping my business will grow as I learn more about the industry.
I have built my website and have tried to make it look as professional as possible www.gemmiev.com
