04 Jun Preston-based photographer shortlisted for business awards
Last year, VB Creative Photography was being shortlisted for the prestigious E3 Business Awards in “Digital, Creative & Media” category. This is a real achievement,” said photographer Vaishakhi Chhotai-Doshi. “Building VB Creative Photography has taken considerable personal commitment and energy. I moved 5,000 miles away from my family to be an independent person because I had an overwhelming passion to succeed in business. I have always worked with professionalism and enthusiasm and, thus, I have earned the trust and appreciation of clients from all walks of life, so I’m very pleased that my efforts have been recognised in this way.
Remarkably, it looks as though she is heading in a very similar direction again, despite being only just a few months into 2015. Entrepreneur Vaishakhi Chhotai-Doshi is in the contest for the titles
1.The Fusion Awards for the “Entrepreneur of the Year” category &
2.The English Asian Awards for the “Young Achiever of the Year” category
Reacting to the announcement, Vaishakhi Chhotai-Doshi said: “I am extremely proud and to be recognised in this capacity is very rewarding.” She also added: “To have achieved this shortlisting that two in two different business awards, I have had to compete with nominees from across the whole region, from Cumbria to Cheshire, so I’m extremely proud to have been named as a finalist. It’s great to win recognition for all the hard work that has put in and now, I really looking forward to the awards evening itself.”
VB Creative Photography specialise in reportage wedding photography and client focused commercial photography including fashion, model portfolio, event, product photography and a range of specialist portrait photography.
Originally from India, she moved to England to excel as a businesswoman and is overwhelmed by the nominations, “I am honoured to be a finalist for such a prestigious award as the “Entrepreneur of the Year” and Young Achiever of the Year”. It had taken many years and a tremendous amount of hard work and determination to build such a diverse portfolio of successful business, of which I am immensely proud of. I am really delighted with the great news.”
Demand for professional photography has grown due to an increase in demand for building companies’ online presence. In many cases, there are more people surfing and buying products online than from shops. Due to this demand, my client base for commercial photography has increased to a great extent, generating more sales from clients with ongoing demands to update their website or brochure with new products and services.
The nominations come off the back of a successful 2014 for Vaishakhi. Her company, VB Creative Photography, was shortlisted for an E3 Business Award last year and she says demand for professional photography has grown. They specialise in reportage wedding photography and client focused commercial photography.
