I decided to set up my own photography & design business in 2008 in France when our youngest child was 18 months old, having studied photography and graphic design at college in the UK and having worked for three companies before moving to France.
At first my small business developed with mainly graphic and website design (as this allowed me to work mostly from home) but back in 2011 I felt that I wanted to develop the photography part of my business and now, I'm very happy to say that most of my time is spent on photography and I love my work.
My working weeks, (well, often weekends too) are built around a wonderful variety of photography giving me the opportunity to meet and photograph people and capture locations and events for both private and commercial clients.
My business is now celebrating it's tenth birthday and I am still loving what I do and gaining immense satisfaction with interpreting my clients ideas and requirements and then providing them with everything they asked for and more.
Here's a recent reference from a commercial client...
"Working with Sabina and Anibas Photography was a pure delight. Archvillain Games worked with Sabina to bring our vision to life in the most creative of ways. Her deep knowledge of photography, her imagination and resourcefulness produced an astonishing result that helped us push the message of our product and our startup company to our customers. Sabina secured one of the most iconic locations in France for our photo-shoot and worked with diligence to produce media assets of the highest quality, delivering immense production value.
All this was accomplished without us even being there! The level of communication and diligence from Sabina is really something i can talk hours about. For our brand, it has been a valuable experience to work with Anibas Photography and a photographer that brings so much passion, imagination and hard work on the table. Personally, working with Sabina has been one of the funnest parts i have experienced so far with my startup company and i am proud to say i have made a friend in Normandy!"
