Paul Collins, professional photographer from PC Visuals has been chosen as July’s member of the month.
"Starting my business in November 2020 in what turned out to be the heart of the pandemic was a calculated gamble that is starting to pay off, my theory was that this was the right time to have a business model with low overheads and the flexibility that clients would need as we come through the difficult times and endeavour to prosper.
I provide photographic and video services to organisations promoting their brand and qualities through www.pcvisuals.com as well as having a long standing wedding photography business www.wildaboutweddings.com
My previous experience stood me in good stead for my current business, after starting my photographic career too many years ago to mention in Greater Manchester I came to the south coast. I covered a broad spectrum of work as a photographer at the Daily Echo’s in Bournemouth and Southampton and won a few awards before becoming Picture Editor of the Southern Daily Echo as well as overseeing other Newsquest publications for 16 years.
My work has been published locally, nationally and internationally in a variety of publications and websites.
I moved into the corporate and PR world when setting up the photography and video section of Deep South Media as Head of Visual in 2015. I successfully built the division providing high quality stills and video for clients in many different sectors locally and nationally, promoting their brand, producing valuable content and publicising their achievements.
After setting up my own business last year I have been privileged to work for a number of fabulous clients in a great variety of sectors and hope to grow with them as we head for more settled and prosperous times."
