We are delighted to announce that Captain David Seath Memorial Fund beneficiary, Steve Mills, recently competed his first year of business as a professional photographer.
A welfare grant from the Captain David Seath Memorial Fund was awarded to Steve, through Help for Heroes, as a means to purchase specialist photography equipment and enrol on courses to support the development of his business aspirations.
One year on Steve’s business, OneShot Photography, continues to grow from strength-to-strength which specialises in bespoke photography, both in the studio and on location. Steve has also founded Recovery Through the Lens which promotes photography as a positive medium for veterans living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
“My first year has been very steady. I have been building up my portfolio and working on myself, to ensure I can manage my mental health in order to cope with any stresses that I may experience on the journey. I have been working on a Community Interest Company (CIC) which I have now registered at Companies House. It is called ‘Recovery Through the Lens’ and the aim is to help other Veterans through the medium of photography. I also have my first exhibition coming up, 4th – 18th June, at the local library, its only a small step, but things seem to be moving in the right direction. This has all been made possible by the Captain David Seath Memorial Fund.”
