If you are suffering from boring wall syndrome. You can brighten it with a print or poster of one of my images of the Tay Rail Bridge, V&A Design Museum + Tay Road Bridge.

It is a netwalking group based in Dundee.

Netwalking is networking while walking. It’s a chance to get some fresh air and exercise while you are networking with other local businesses.

Instead of networking sitting down over a coffee or even worse staring at a screen.

Why not stretch your legs?

Do you need stunning images for your case study?

Amazing photography is scroll stopping

Stunning images do inspire clicks

Incredible photos will attract new clients

Professional photography for a case study isn’t a cost, it’s an investment.

 X Mediocre photography does not stop people scrolling

 X Uninspired images do not get clicked

 X Dull photos don’t attract new customers 

Great images are vital for any case study if you want to show your exceptional work to attract more clients.

Construction is a multi-billion pound industry.

About Me

Instead of reading why not listen to a podcast where I talk about

“My Story so Far”

Or if you prefer reading…

My journey to photography

When I was a cub scout, I didn’t get my photography badge. It was supposedly a sure thing. I borrowed a camera, loaded up a 24 exposure roll of film, and just four came out.

I think my photography has improved since then.

Biochemistry brought me to Dundee in 2002. In 2005, I hung up my pipette for the last time and reached for my camera.  After studying biochemistry for over six years (BSc.+ PhD), I didn’t want to retrain. I believed I could earn a living from photography. For over a decade, I produced stock photography. I travelled around taking photos, uploaded them to a stock agency and waited for someone to buy them.

Someone once told me this is not a career. It’s a lifestyle. Looking back, that person was right. I may have taken my retirement early. For a few years, I was a jet setter flying to the USA, Europe or Southeast Asia for weeks at a time to increase my portfolio. When we started a family, my trips became shorter and confined to Scotland.

Unfortunately, the stock agency set the prices and their cut. Over the years, the prices my images sold for plummeted, and their share steadily increased. My 65% cut dwindled to 40%. Therefore I started Stephen Finn Photography and decided to try the B2B market.  After joining the local chamber of commerce, I networked like crazy. If there was a free event, I was there.

Many events clashed with the school run or required child care to attend. I decided to set up my event at lunchtime, a netwalking group called “Walk N Talk“. From May 2019 – March 2020, we met twice a month on a Wednesday lunchtime. We walked along the wide footpaths by the River Tay created during the regeneration of Dundee’s waterfront. A week before lockdown began, we switched to an online format called Click N Talk using Zoom and its breakout rooms.

Prior to Covid19 I was doing event photography and taking headshots. From my headshot work I developed an interest in LinkedIn after having not much success with Facebook and Twitter. I found there was a lack of great photography on LinkedIn. I started to experiment, posting local news stories with my own photos. Once I gave a live talk about creating content on LinkedIn and when Covid19 hit and event photography dried up. I decided to develop that talk into webinars that I hosted. These were expanded into an online course about LinkedIn profile, content and connections.

When my children returned to school, I also embraced online networking. Some months I attended 10 – 15 meetings a week which helped me build my network. Currently, I am only attending events I host myself, and I am happy to announce that my networking group Walk N Talk has restarted in Dundee.

Now, I am rebooting my photography business. I am concentrating on three aspects of photography that I enjoy, architecture, headshots and events. I believe if you are passionate about the subject, it will show in your work.

I am a creative person as well as photography and videography. I also dabble with writing and even animation.
