    I am a modern and creative wedding & portrait photographer-in-training. My website is at Zoe's Gallery. I am new to the world of professional photography though I have been taking photographs since I got my first SLR. That was over 15 years ago and I’ve been an avid image-maker ever since, and completed a BA (Hons) degree in Fine Art in 2007, gaining First Class honours. My artwork can be viewed at zoe.hoss


    While my photography training is self-directed, it is a full-time occupation and I take it very seriously! I gave up paid work in the banking sector before spending some time travelling a couple of years ago. I consider the following activities integral to my training.


    • Interning two days a week at Rachel Movitz Weddings helping out with varied tasks and practice-shooting at weddings

    • Attending local training courses such as those run by Oxford School of Photography and Trained Eye

    • Using internet tutorials to learn about aspects of photography as well as business, website development, software and inspiration

    • Blogging several times a week (my blog can be viewed at Zoe's Gallery and my personal development one at therapy journey)

    • Purchasing a top-of-the-line camera (Canon 5D Mark III) and 2 professional lenses, and learning exactly how to get the best out of my kit

    • Meeting with established photographers

    • Constantly shooting personal projects and subjects that interest me

    • Cultivating a successful social media / web presence and using the internet to create a professional network

    • Attending photography trade shows and expos

    • Keeping up to date with current industry news

    • Travelling – it’s a great way of sharpening one’s skills


    Deciding I wanted to become a photographer was a big step on my life’s journey. In summer I will spend two months backpacking around Eastern Europe. My medium-term plan is to emigrate to the United States, having pursued creative projects there in 2014 and 2015.
