To paraphrase (or perhaps butcher!) Socrates, I have always believed that a life without pursuing one's passions is not worth living. While I have been dabbling aimlessly with various artistic mediums for years, it's only recently, after being inspired by some of the brilliant artists on this site (and one in particular!), that I decided to seriously pursue a passion for capturing human beauty whether face or figure using the photographic medium as opposed to pastels or charcoal (although I am not above using photoshop to create this look from photos :-)).
I am fascinated by colour and light, form and shape, and the art of telling a story and/or capturing a mood or emotion in visual (and also written) form. I would like to experiment with different types of shots - from the arty, black and whites shadows, cuts and lines - to fashion, glamour and pin-up shots both indoor and outdoor that compel the viewer to look at with more than a passing eye.
To achieve these admittedly lofty goals, I am hoping to meet like minded photographers and models that I can learn from and collaborate with on increasingly creative ventures, and build mutually compelling portfolios.
