The Speakers bio - Convention Schedule January 2018
The face behind Detheo Photography, Maria Michael today covers a variety of photographic genre, yet it is fair to say that Maria is most commonly recognised for her Pet Photography. Her years of dedication to this area have not only enabled her to work for many private clients, teach Pet Photography workshops, but also saw her commissioned by industry leaders in both the Pet Insurance Industry and Veterinary Practice.
Yet, 20 years ago, if you had asked Maria Michael what her future would look like, she never would have mentioned Photography! At that time it was not even something she considered a hobby, she just loved to capture photographs of family and friends, events, places she would visit etc. not realising that even then, her need to preserve memories was her driving force.
In 2005, whilst working as a Senior Social Work, one incident was to change her life forever, and be the catalyst to the start of a new journey. A journey that would find her confronting, physical, psychological and emotional challenges.
Now, after 7 years of running her own business, Maria hopes that her experiences can help to inspire others. She also wants to start raising the profile of Pet Photography, and to promote greater respect and understanding about just how important a service it is.

Convention testimonials Just want to thank you for the amazing SWPP convention. Even though I could only visit yesterday (15th) I had a great time and was great to focus on my business and what I want to achieve both short term and long term and to think of the area that I need to develop my skills in.
