Convention testimonials It was a great pleasure and an honour being at the convention. I would like to thank you and Phil for believing in me and inviting me to speak at the convention for the 2nd time. I really enjoyed sharing my knowledge with the numerous delegates that have attended my sessions. I had such a great feedback that it sounds too good to be true. Furthermore, I would like to thank you for the 4 awards that I got at the convention. This experience will help me to work even harder for the coming competitions. Christopher Azzopardi

An article from our Professional Imagemaker archive
Establishing a strong photography business is a story in itself, but to launch that business after 20 years in corporate life, into the competitive and demanding area of Cheshire, at a time when the world’s economies are in turmoil, and when you’re a woman in a predominantly man’s world, makes Lesley’s story all the more fascinating and inspiring.
