Photography has been a passion of mine since the age of 13, with a keen interest in physics I found that I could apply this to my photography.
My tool is capturing time, it's capturing a significant event. For every photo the public sees, there are many more that never made it.
It's all about timing, an expression can be a fleeting presence.
Time is the essence of photography.
Over the last few years I have seen experience across a wide range of fields from shooting for www.leisurewearinternational.com to creating a display book for a farmhouse renovation project. I would really say most of my knowledge has been self taught (as I said I read all the handbooks from the age of 13), and having learn the fundamentals of camera-work at a young age the time since had been hands on; learning from my mistakes on the way. I have a photography A-level and did start university but sadly made a bad decision of university (for personal reasons, not the university) and sadly didn't continue with it. Since I have shot a good number of weddings and the project for Leisurewear International amongst a flurry of other slightly less interesting commissions. Having a lot of experience in retail since 15 I'm a hard working individual who can easily communicate ideas and interact with other people.
After taking order of a new camera I'm looking to persevere and set myself up as a self-employed photographer.
