Welcome to Dawn O'Connor Photography for Photographers
These pages are here for photographers, hopefully you will enjoy the tips and resources and be able to not only learn something but will also share your tips and resources.
First I guess I should introduce myself.... I am Dawn O'Connor, I'm a professional photographer with a studio in Rochester Kent UK. I have been into photography from my teenage years. I did the usual type of photography that I expect most of us did in the begining, pics of the family, holiday snaps etc for many years with the odd "arty photo" thrown in. My true passion for photography came about when I was at university many years later studying for a Garden Design Degree. By then digital photography had developed and I was instantly hooked!
I started out with flowers of course as part of my degree course then landscapes which I loved. I was living in London at this time so had a wealth of subjects to photograph. I have been lucky and have sold a great deal of my work worldwide. I also worked for a local magazine covering "Good News" stories which enabled me to meet some wonderful people.
A couple of years ago I moved to Rochester in Kent and a year ago set up my own portrait studio. It has not been easy but is finally becoming well known and clients are fast spreading the word for me.
I thought that now would be a good time to pass on some of my knowledge to other photographers who might be thinking about trying to earn some money from this wonderful hobby of ours.
