Business Commercial and Lifestyle Photography Training with Multi Award Winning Photographer Nikki Kirk
I was brought up in the Cotswolds and had a proper Famous Five style childhood with a real ‘can do’ attitude instilled in me.
I fell into Brand & Marketing by accident a couple of weeks after I had graduated (I have a degree in archaeology from Trinity College) when I was offered a place on a graduate scheme at one of the UK’s leading Marketing agencies. From there I went on to become one of the youngest account directors in the industry. I topped out at Client Services Director before going Client side after 12 years. Working on global brands including BP, American Express, British Airways, Ford, M&G Investments, Lloyds Banking Group, Danone, GlaxoSmithkline, AXA and many more.
For 15 years I lived and worked in this exciting world of advertising, marketing and brand strategy. Globetrotting between London and New York before meeting my Husband and moving back home to the Cotswolds.
Then nearly a decade ago I grabbed the opportunity to make the jump to a full time photographer and haven’t looked back. I have trained with the best in the business. Built a solid multi award winning photography business. Flown overseas to work my photography magic. Opened a studio in the historic Cotswold City of Gloucester. And nurtured a talented and supportive team. I believe in sharing knowledge. And now its time to pass on that knowledge. Helping you to succeed, to reach your goals, and to celebrate your success. For me there’s no greater reward than helping businesses to develop and succeed.
“A few months ago I enrolled onto Nikki’s photography for small businesses course and I can honestly say I learnt a lot of new skills within a few hours! During the course, Nikki went above and beyond sharing her knowledge. We worked through looking at my business as a whole – my objectives, audience, customer journey and how creating the right images link to all of these points. Nikki then showed me a set up that is easy to recreate at home, I had the chance to capture some lovely photos using my phone. Not only did I go away feeling more confident in photography, I was also given an information workbook to take away. I highly recommend this course!” Rachel Knowles – RKM Calligraphy
