A PHOTOGRAPHER has been left snap happy after seeing his business boom.

Bob Brittain has swapped his keyboard for a camera when he left his profession in computers to focus on his passion for photography.

Bob Brittain, 57, of Thorne, has swapped his computer career for that of a freelance photographer. He and wife Pauline have opened their new photography business Naturescapes based in Kenyon Close, Thorne. Beach huts at Wells next to the sea in Norfolk.

Bob Brittain, 57, of Thorne, has swapped his computer career for that of a freelance photographer. He and wife Pauline have opened their new photography business Naturescapes based in Kenyon Close, Thorne. Beach huts at Wells next to the sea in Norfolk.

The 57-year-old super snapper decided to then take the plunge and launch his own business. He opened Naturescapes UK last August from his home in Kenyon Close, Thorne.

And following its snappy success, some of which can be seen here, the business has moved to permanent premises in The Green in a bid to boost future plans of expansion.

Bob wants to open a studio upstairs to take portraits and landscapes.

He said: “Photography has always been there in my life, right from learning the basics from my dad and having my first box camera.

“I have never been without a camera. It can only be described as being a passion.”

Bob thanked wife Pauline, 52, for her “invaluable support”.
