July 2007 – Tom Horsley Photography Opens
In July of 2007, I opened my little shop selling prints of Brixham, and a few wildlife images. It was all very simple, and, of course I made lots of mistakes along the way.
As I was preparing to open, I tried to ignore the comments of “Well, that won’t last long” and many similar comments made by passers by.
Since 2007, the market has changed, everyone has a camera on their phone, and no-one seems to want to buy pictures any more … so we had to adapt and find our way in the world.
JULy 2019 – RE-BRANDING To “Shooting The DOg” Completed
A chance meeting with a framer who had recently moved to the town, ended up with “The Framing Dept”, as we now call it, being created.
I decided to use some of the skills I had acquired as a wildlife photographer and concentrate on the pet and dog market.
“Shooting The Dog” finally materialised, and today the new shop sign was finished. Twelve years on, and I am still here .
So, to those who claimed I wouldn’t last long, what have you got to say for yourselves now?
