Stephen Potts

Photography has been a hobby in Stephen's family for 3 generations and his interest dates from early teenage years, when he knew photography would be his career after a few jobs turned into more work. He left school at 18 driving a car which was bought with money earned behind the lens and went full-time with an apprenticeship in Belfast-based studio, ‘Advertising Photography’. Stephen shot work for banks, government agencies, retailers, manufacturers and the food and beverage industries and loved it!

He took the decision to become self-employed in 1993 and continues to make his living as a photographer to this day with work in recent years being for a mix of advertising and corporate/industrial clients with a growing trend towards moving images. He has always enjoyed being a photographer and still finds himself waking up in the morning knowing that working at something you love is truly a privilege.
