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, there’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 you’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) … 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 – 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becoming an increasingly important part of my life, so I got my first DSLR, which I still have but which has also been superseded by a newer DSLR.
I’m mostly interested in pointing my camera towards the outdoors; landscapes, seascapes and architecture, but I’ve also turned my lenses towards weddings, formals, child and mother portraits, local bands and more. I’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 ‘day job’.
