Who is Ian Petrie?
I am a retired model turned photographer, I spent over 5 years modelling for other local photographers and I was lucky enough to exhibit in 3 exhibitions in London, Derby & Manchester over the course of my 5 year modelling hobby.
I decided to retire from modelling to learn photography, at first it was just a hobby, but after 12 months learning and practising portrait photography with models I know from when I use t model, I started to get local families asking if I can take some family photos.
One thing lead to another and very soon I found myself very busy with newborn, family, headshot and portrait photography on a regular bases making me start my business. I work for another 4 to 5 years before entering into weddings and now that is my main part of my business with portrait and headshot services following closely behind. I have been awarded several awards for my images and most recently awarded "the best family photography service East Midlands 2019" by the Midlands Enterprise Awards, which I am very proud of.
I have a massive passion for all things involved with photography including pets, landscapes and astrography such as milkyway and startrails.
I would love to talk to you about your photography requirements, weather it be a wedding, business headshot or family event!
