Kerry and Ant’s story
Kerry and Ant started their business, ‘This Life Media’, after recognising their skills were complementary and could provide a unique new service when combined. Their business brings the power of video and photography together in a one-stop-shop media service.
With support from Outset Cornwall, the pair was able to make ‘This Life Media’ a reality. The business start-up course provided them with the knowledge they needed to launch while giving advice and guidance on what they both needed to do to create a sustainable new business.
“Although together we have a fair amount of knowledge and experience in video and photography, neither of us had any experience in business at all.”
“The knowledge we gained from the advisors at each session was incredibly valuable, but more than anything, the sessions gave us both confidence that we are capable of starting and running our own business.”
They enjoy working with businesses that are looking to adapt their visual marketing and online presence as well as offering services for weddings or photo-shoots; perfect for individuals looking to capture those special occasions.
The pair started the business after undertaking a variety of different jobs ranging from cleaning to telecommunications.
“Although my working background has never had a clear direction, it has always been my plan to make a career from something creative.” Says Kerry.
Kerry and Ant are hoping to develop the business further in the future. Their ultimate dream is to reach a level where the business is fully established and they are able to work on this full time.
