Most photographers have a story as to why they got into photography, for me it was when I captured this image in 2007 up until then my photography was point and shoot, my wife and I would go away for the weekend I would take my camera and grab some snaps if something caught my eye. I knew nothing of aperture or shutter modes I used auto mode for everything, I had never heard of raw. Back in 2007 we were coming back from a trip up north when we stopped off at a burger van on the A9 and there this stag was just yards away, I thought this was amazing I like everyone else grabbed some snaps and did not think much more about it. It was a couple of days later I put the images onto my pc and when opened this image up I thought wow I really like that. That was me hooked, I started buying magazines and learning how to use my camera properly, I started seeing things differently I saw photo's all around me. The more I learned the more I wanted to learn.
I started selling some prints to friends, I got asked to shoot a wedding, I was so nervous I felt ill but when I started shooting the buzz was amazing. I have now been published in papers and magazines, I have won a couple of competitions and have now shot many weddings without any advertising and I regularly sell canvas's and prints through online stores.
I have learned a great deal the last few years and I'm still learning and my photography is still getting better as my journey continues.
Welcome to my blog. My photography is on a tight budget like so many others out there, but through this blog I hope to show that great photographs can be achieved by all.
