Mandy’s work has been featured many times on our Instagram and Facebook, and sometimes we may be a little too gushing, but we really love her work and think she has a unique, and beautiful style… which we’re thrilled to share with you!
Mandy hails from Surrey (just outside London), and you’d never guess from her incredibly beautiful work that she only completed our Business & Blogging Photography Course in 2015, then jumped into our Advanced Photography Course in early 2016.
I was frustrated that I could not take photographs inside, or in poor light conditions.
Which is half the year here in the British winter.
I knew I was missing something, but just did not know what.
The very first thing in the Click Love Grow Enthusiasts course is a little mention about equipment.
That was my first big ah-ha moment. That it’s not just the camera, it’s all about the lens.
Then the next ah-ha moment was learning how to shoot manual.
That was so liberating!
I could now shoot indoors, in shade, on the coldest darkest winters day with NO flash. It was amazing and so much fun.
In every single manner possible! Where do I start?!
My goal is to raise my family and earn a living doing what I love.
I just love portraits. All kinds of portraits.
I love being able to capture emotion and feeling with images.
I like watching people and capturing them when they are unguarded. It’s the honest, simple moments in life that are the best.
I find inspiration for my photography all day, every day, everywhere.
It never turns off and I hope it never does.
If I see something pretty and I don’t have my camera I just about have a panic attack!
Oh yes. Too many!
This before photograph is taken on my son’s second birthday, shortly before I started the first course.
I was so frustrated and disappointed that I could not capture these moments. The after photograph is on my son’s third birthday.
What a difference a year makes!

After Click Love Grow Photography Course
I love my 85mm and of course my Canon 5D Mark3 which I invested in earlier this year.
It’s an amazing piece of equipment that is popular with most photographers for it’s range, flexibility, and sharp images.
Click Love Grow taught me the all basics to get me started on this amazing adventure of a lifetime.
It has opened my eyes to so much.
One of the best parts of Click Love Grow is that it does not end when the course ends.
There is a wonderfully supportive, informative and very active Facebook group for graduates which I could not live without!
Thank-you to the wonderful Mandy for sharing her words and lessons with us!
