- Callum Staley I am a reliable and self motivated person. I enjoy all aspects of Cjs Photography, from taking the photographs and editing them to developing and customising my website and clients websites
A little bit about Cjs Photography
My first photos were taken on my mums’ pocket point and shoot digital camera of my sister show jumping at local events. I was asked by other competitors to take pictures of them adding that they would be more than happy to pay me as it's not easy to get a photo of yourself going over a jump on a horse.
Initially I showed the images on the small camera screen and ordered prints as requested. Mum and Dad gave me a DSLR camera kit for Christmas and I opened an online account with a company who specialized in displaying third party photo albums with prints for sale.
I now had my own business and things went very well for about a year, then the online photo company went bankrupt. Dad and I decided that the best solution would be to build our own website. After many hours work and an initial very steep learning curve we launched www.cjsphotography.co.im.
I have upgraded my cameras and lenses a couple of times and in June 2014 I completely redeveloped my website making it responsive which gives viewing capability on mobile devices and I added e-commerce. I now enjoy the computer and web design of the business as much as the photography. I have now left school and am studying a Level 3 Extended Diploma in IT
