I am really glad I have taken the step and launched all by myself. The Outset programme has given me a good sense of self belief, especially during those times when I’ve questioned myself!

Louise’s story

With an exciting background in modeling, Louise was no stranger behind the camera.  As well as writing professionally for a local newspaper she also secured a regular slot on two radio stations. Struggling to find that balance between working the normal working day and spending time with her son, as a single parent Louise needed to find a more flexible job.

Stepping into an unfamiliar position, Louise decided to try a different experience of working behind the camera in her spare time. She soon realised her passion for photography could be a great new business idea.

“ Taking photos of exciting things like extreme sports and special events as well as the more beautiful surroundings in Cornwall made me think I could channel my passion into a business. Being a single mum, this would give me back control of my time!”

Louise came to Outset for help in getting her business idea on track. Her business coach Spencer Hassall worked with Louise to help her build her idea into a fledging new enterprise.

“Outset have got the perfect balance of being approachable and personable and providing the professional requirements needed to get me started.  It has been fun to meet other people in the same situation, dealing with similar concerns, but also excited about starting a business.”

Head strong and confident Louise is now out there promoting her new business, Silver Waters Photography. Mainly working in the areas of extreme sports and lifestyle shots, Louise’s images have already been featured in many local magazines and newspapers. She has also created a range of canvases and black cards to spread the word about her unique photographic style.

What does the future hold for Louise? She is still dedicated to working with the media to provide images for local sporting events and festivals happening specifically in Cornwall. With a bright future ahead, Silver Waters looks to be making an impact in Cornwall. One of her images is being used on the flyers for this year’s Boardmasters competition.
