I have always enjoyed taking photos with my phone.  Christmas time 2019 I made a couple of calenders as Christmas presents they went down a treat.  January 2020 I bought a Nikon Coolpix B600 then covid hit.  I was on furlough from April until August during that time I clicked away most days and started to produce my first calendar Mid Argyll and beyond within 3 weeks I had raised £1000.00 for the Local MacMillan Unit in Lochgilphead.  After a couple of visits to Tarbert Loch Fyne the second calendar was born Summer Time in Tarbert.  By this time Cards were now being produced and a Third Calendar was born Flowers at Glencraigs Farm.  January 2021 and I have now raised over £5000.00 and over 800 calendars sold and now the proud owner of a Nikon Coolpix P1000.  The website was on the cards to get the calendars and cards further afield for 2022.  20% of my profit from the Calendars will go towards the MacMillian Unit.

 

2022 Update 

 

This year was my first year being able to travel around to Local markets where my customer base grew, I also had a roadside honesty box and have been greatful to my employer Susan Paterson at Argyll Pharmacy for allowing me to sell my Calendards and Cards in the pharmacy.  I also did my first talk at Ford WRI with a couple more planned for 2022.  I am looking forward to where my photography journey will take me in 2022 I have now purchased a drone to add to my collection of Cameras.

 

My fundraising total for 2021 was £2500 for the Local MacMillan unit here in Lochgilphead taking my total over the last two years to £7628.00 my the start of 2023 I hope to reach £10,000 in memory of my late mother Marion.  I am also bringing in a new chairty for 2022 with a Fishing boats on the West Coast Calendar with 20% from this calendar going to the Fishermens mission.

 

Based in Mid Argyll Scotland I have many amazing photography spots on my door step.

 

The hobby that has taken over my life
