I am Maddie - the face behind Madison May Photography.
As you can tell by the photos below I much prefer to behind the camera, unless its for a 'cute' photo of me and my cat Luna. ( Luna is my assistant she helps keep my lap warm while I edit)
I first got into photography when I was about 13 years old - I loved photographing wildlife and animals. Creating special memories is what really drives my passion in photography, it's such an amazing feeling capturing treasured moments.
Below I have listed some of my greatest achievements for me in photography.
In 2010 I entered the PDSA photography competition with a picture of a border terrier. I was amazed that I came first in the under 18 category. Then in 2011 I entered the Pet Savers photography competition and I came first with a picture of a black Labrador. This started my love for dog photography.
It was also in 2011 that I put together my own vintage fashion photo shoot. I set myself a budget of £100 and with that I managed to rent a boat, get a make up artist and a hair dresser as well as models. This shoot caught the eye of the Times newspaper photographer and I got invited to meet him.
At the age of 16 I photographed my first wedding.
Recently I also came top 20 in a street style photography competition with Next and won a competition with a camera bag company called The Tog Bag.
