About Maria

I am a female UK Photographer based in Barnsley, South Yorkshire. My speciality is People Photography, but that's not where it ends... I started taking photo's a long time ago when I was very young and my mother gave me her vintage Kodak Brownie which she was given when she was 16! (about 50 years ago) ... I've been taking photos ever since! As soon as I decided I wanted to make a career out of photography, I bought my first DSLR camera in 2008, and then I started studying for my diploma in photography. After that I did lots of "free" work before launching my business fully on the 6th January 2011....and that’s where the fun began! I am a perfectionist, quite feisty, brutally honest but fun ;) I have two crazy dogs called Izzy & Ozzy (part Chihuahua, part Jack Russell) and when they aren't at the vets they make for great models ;) In my spare time (when I have some) you may find me down at the gym....(cough)....where they have a lovely massage program and a great manicurist! hehe ;) I hope you enjoy the blog; meanwhile if you would like to contact me, here are my details: • T – 07947 511 377 • E – info@mariacaltonphotography.co.uk • W – www.mariacaltonphotography.co.uk Anything else you want to know - just ask!
