WEB DESK: What was it that you were possibly doing when you were nine years-old? Do math? Read a proper book? Help your parents wash the car? Well, some of the nine years-old have bigger plans than that.
Meet Regina Wyllie, a nine year-old professional wedding photographer. Wyllis is a master at her work and is now requested by her name for weddings. Born in Scotland, Regina has been handling a camera since she was three. THREE!
She helps her father Kevin Wyllie, and according to him she gave up her toy camera when she was three and picked up a Canon G9, and asked her father to teach her properly.
“While I was shooting, she went into one of my camera bags and pulled out a small, compact camera and starting taking some shots,” said Kevin.
He said that Regina’s interest in the field only kept growing after that first photography experience.
“She’d take that small camera out, and ask, ‘Will you show me how to use it properly dad?,'” Wyllie said. “Over the years…she’d ask me more and more questions, and ask to come out shooting with me.”
All the pictures below are taken by Regina herself.
Indeed, it’s clear that young Regina is quite comfortable behind the lens.
“My dad has taught me how to change the aperture light, and the triangle thing,” she said, before her dad clarified: “the exposure triangle.”
She’s booked for another wedding on July 1.
