Tom Cave founded TLC Photography, a home based photography service, two years ago.

With business growing, the 31 year-old enlisted the help of an old friend to help him open the studio in Fallow Corner Drove.

Mr Cave showed off his studio to customers at an open day on Saturday, with one lucky winner getting a free photoshoot.

He said: “The open day was great for people to come and have a look at a selection of my photographs and to see my many backdrops and props in the new studio.

“I’m hoping to get into a lot more schools around Cambridgeshire because what I do is a bit different than the current school photographers.”
