Hi I’m Emily,
I have been passionate about photography since I was 16 years old. My first job was to photograph my aunt and uncle’s wedding anniversary celebration. They paid me the princely sum of £200 in advance. Just 40 minutes into the party my battery failed and my confidence crumbled. Thankfully I was able to borrow my brother’s SLR and still look the part. This was the start of my incredible journey into the world of professional photography. My first five years were spent working with other photographers (some incredible and some unscrupulous) and business experts, soaking up all the knowledge and experience they were happy to share with me.
Over the years I have invested hugely in creative, personal and business development and continue to do so. I run a successful photography business www.emilyhancock.co.uk and have also been involved in training for the last four years. I continuously drive my business to new levels and love to expand my creative boundaries. I have recently been awarded the highest accolade, a Fellowship for my fine art equine photography from the British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP) and I was voted South East Photographer of the Year in 2012.
Since being involved in training I have received encouragement and accolades from various clients both professional and amateur with regard to my training courses. I feel proud and privileged to be in a position to pass on my knowledge and experience to other like-minded creative people.
I have spent many hours creating courses that will truly make a difference. I have designed the courses with the utmost attention to detail and inclusive of all the information you will need to be successful. My intention is not to drip feed but to be open and honest, and to give you a complete picture on how to survive and thrive in the ever changing creative market.
YOU MIGHT NOT THINK YOU’RE GOOD ENOUGH OR CREATIVE ENOUGH BUT THAT’S WHERE I CAN HELP. BE BOLD, BE BRAVE AND MAKE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE.
