It would be nice to think of the photographs I create as being the results of happy accidents or, at best, a rare fleeting moment of inspiration, but, like other activities which strive towards some sort of pinacle of achievement, thereâ€™s a lot of hard work and personal failure along the way.
Still, I like that they allow others to (possibly) appreciate (even a little bit of) what it was I was attempting to convey in the final image.
I guess youâ€™re expecting a little bit here about how I first got interested in photography at a young age when I first got a [insert camera brand here] camera from one of my parents (usually father) â€¦ but for me at least, this is not that case.
In 2004 I was in Italy using a point-and-shoot digital camera. This was quickly followed-up by the purchase of a bridge camera, which I kept until 2007 â€“ the sensor died. At that stage, I knew that photography was becoming an increasingly important part of my life, so I got my first DSLR, which I still have but which has also been superseded by a newer DSLR.
Iâ€™m mostly interested in pointing my camera towards the outdoors; landscapes, seascapes and architecture, but Iâ€™ve also turned my lenses towards weddings, formals, child and mother portraits, local bands and more. Iâ€™ve also been involved in documenting the works of other artists from the local area.
For me photography is the perfect counter-point to my day-to-day job as an I.T. systems bod. The creativity afforded me by photography balances out the regiment and strict work processes that I have to comply with during my â€˜day jobâ€™.
