Hey there! So, you’ve stumbled across my blog and wondered who the person is behind the name.
Back in 2008 I threw caution to the wind and bought a camera that I couldn’t afford. I was tired of my job and wanted to do something different, something I previously never thought I’d be able to achieve… I wanted to take my photography seriously and make some money from it. I swore to myself that I would make this camera pay for itself, and whilst single, and in a job I hated, I really had nothing to lose. That first camera really got the ball rolling, and more than paid for itself, many times over, as I photographed kids football teams, childrens portraits, proms and weddings. The weddings were mostly free in the beginning, of course, as you have to start somewhere, right?!
Fast forward to today, I now have a wonderful wife who I married in 2012 and hasn’t been able to get rid of me yet, and two beautiful daughters that have become my world, and yes, this blog is now literally saturated with pictures of them both. I still shoot weddings and portraits today as I love capturing people, none more so than my two little girls as they grow up so fast! I love people to see themselves at their best, and it’s a lovely feeling when you see someone who usually dislikes their photo actually pleased with a picture of themselves.
If you scroll back you’ll find a mix of posts here, weddings and portrait sessions, as well as a whole bunch of personal stuff, I am now in the middle of yet another 365 project, my third one so far. The biggest challenge in taking a photo every day is trying to vary your shots. Go take a look, tell me what you think, and if you’re out taking photos, tell me what you like to shoot!
If you’re a fellow photographer… leave a comment, I love hearing from other photographers!
