Welcome to my portfolio of work. I think photography, as much as any form of creativity, reflects a person's personality and how they view the world. I enjoy photographing many different things, which I think you'll be able to see from my work, and I guess that reflects my personality! From portraits and events to landscapes, street photography and art, I enjoy life and living and experiencing it all through a lens.
Over the years I've been photographing, the thing that's always driven me on has been aiming for better photographs. And the best way to improve is to do, and do, and do. I took over 50,000 photos in my first year. Some were good, some (I thought) were great, but most were a rude awakening to the fact that I needed to improve! There are so many different types of photography and different techniques and methods we can use to enable us to capture something we want to convey, especially in the digital era where technology is always updating itself, so there's always something more we photographers can learn, which is great for the perfectionists among us!
The three most important things for me in photography are: timing, light and depth. If you have good timing, can use your camera to make the most of light and can find depth in everyday places, then in my book you're on the right track to becoming a great photographer. It's no surprise that these three things are also the fundamentals needed to understand how cameras work! Having said that, being technically sound alone will not create the most special of photographs we all love - they take something extra, more intangible, something related to the soul that can't be easily qualified, and its that which I strive for in my photography, the picture that makes you jump on the spot with glee. There are very few feelings to match it!
