Regina Wyllie is already getting a head start on joining the family business. At only 9 years old, she already has quite a few years of experience working with her dad, a professional photographer in Ayrshire, Scotland.
“When she was 3, she asked to come along with me when I was shooting a mountain bike race,” he told BuzzFeed. “She lifted my Canon G9 compact camera from my bag and started taking some snaps. I have never forced her to shoot, or to learn anything, and prefer to wait for her to ask questions or to show me an image that she is curious about how it was shot.”
Now the 9-year-old is fast on track, as she’s being requested personally by brides to accompany her father’s wedding shoots. But not only are wedding clients requesting the youngster, when she was 7 years old, a photo she took at one of Kevin’s “trash the dress” shoots was picked up for a ThinkTank campaign. Not to mention when Kevin was asked to shoot a comedian for a local magazine, Regina tagged along and, of course, her shot was picked over her father’s for the magazine!
