It's been over a year now since I began to make the adjustment to my new life as a photographer. In that time I have made changes to how I present my work, this new website being a case in point; I have learned more about myself and what I love to photograph.
There are still many areas of photography that I'd like to dip my toes into, rest assured I will continue to explore what works, and you'll certainly see the results posted here.
If I was solely driven by the need to make a regular income then I would very quickly find myself unable to be as free to do as much 'pleasurable' exploratory work as I do. This is something that I can thankfully afford to be choosy about, although it's actually good to stretch myself now and again as the challenge is important and its lessons are beneficial; variety after all, is the spice of life.
My wonderful and beautiful 'better-half' occasionally accompanies me when I'm out and about, offering sound advice and helping me to see the positives and cast aside the doubts, she's also superb as my 'front of house' organiser. I view my career as very much being a work in progress, I'm still discovering what makes me tick as a photographer and I'm open to new ideas, no matter where they come from.
I do this because I love to do it, it's challenging (in a very good way) and keeps me coming back for more; I constantly strive for the highest standards, and to create wonderful images. My hope over the coming years is to gain recognition for what I do, to keep learning and improving, and to keep exploring and testing my skills.
It may be that you are looking for a photographer? Perhaps you run a business and you're looking for someone? Maybe you're wondering if I could help you? I can only tell you this, I want to take high quality images that deliver, and you could become part of my journey, just get in touch...
My commitment is driven by my desire to continually grow as a photographer. Taking creative images is something I genuinely love to do, and I hope that message shines through my work.
This journey has only just begun...
