Nisha was the winner of the IPSE UK Freelancer of the Year 2017 Aspire award.
'Aspire' is all about recognising and supporting young, up and coming self-employed talent.
We hear a snapshot of how Nisha got started as a photogapher: finding funding (without a loan in sight), and with it, finding community, clients and self belief.
