It was not until 2011 after a long career in the corporate world that I decided to pursue professional photography. I have more than 30 years experience in photography, marketing, business development and production.
I have always been driven and pushing boundaries, learning and trying new ideas and enjoy most of all the challenges that are presented along the way.
I DON'T MEASURE HOW FAR IS THE END, I LOOK AT HOW FAR I HAVE COME, AS LONG AS I AM IN A DIFFERENT PLACE IM OK.
One thing was clear though, I needed to make it a sustainable business foremost supported by my passion for photography and not the other way around. To this end I had to diversify and keep up with trends and technology that support what I am doing as a photographer. I got involved in immersive 3D Virtual Tours which supports most of the photography that I am doing such as real estate, retail, insurance and other corporate and industrial genres. 3D photography and virtual tours opens the door to many other industries.
The brand 3603D Virtual Tours falls under Rory Baker Photography.
IMMERSE YOUR CLIENTS IN YOUR WORLD
I wanted to put my mentoring and coaching skills to work so in 2014 I established My Photo School and since its inception I have coached hundreds of amateur photographers from beginners to intermediate and some have even gone on to become professional photographers themselves. Today I am expanding my training to include some advanced coaching.
At the end of 2016 I established My Photo Safari which started wildlife and landscape workshops [and photo safaris]. These workshops expand my coaching offering. My Photo School offers classroom short courses and 1-day workshops, My Photo Safari offers 3 to 5-day workshops.
