My photographic style: I would my style as being very much a photographer who tries to remain as loyal to the original as possible by only minimally adjusting my photos to maximise the capture. In all honesty there is a bit of room to improve as I'm still a relative newbie in terms of my development as a photographer so my style is evolving.
My greatest strengths: My greatest strength is that I do not produce images that are overly edited so natural appearance is maintained.
I have been in photography: I have been a photographer as a hobbyist since 2011 but only started to become really serious about photography in 2016.
How I got started in photography: I got started when I was bought a DSLR camera in 2011 for my birthday.
My photographic skills: I would say my key skills are my ability to capture the images on a shoot in studio or on locations in such a way that I can minimally edit them to produce a final image.
My personality: I am a caring, friendly outgoing person in general but am a bit shy around new people but I'm starting to overcome this. My friends and family would probably describe me as a big softy as due to my caring nature I will often give of myself to help others and worthy causes.
Geographic areas I cover: West Midlands.
Venues I frequently attend: I enjoy shooting in studios or on locations where their are interesting features to complement the theme I'm shooting to.
I found inspiration from: I'm inspired by multiple photographers such as Helmut Newton, Mario Testino and Steve McCurry
Success in photography: I have been in the top 20% in competitions online on ViewBug and Photocrowd but haven't yet had any success in any Society recognised competitions. I am mostly self taught but did a few online course and courses through Adult Education Services, I am awaiting acceptance onto a course at my local FET college.
Photographic training: Mostly self taught from books and online at the moment but have done a few online courses and courses through Adult Education Services to improve my skills and abilities but these are informal course so not certificated. I have applied to my local college and am awaiting acceptance onto a course.
My interests outside photography: Other than photography I attend a Baptist Church in Coventry and assist as a Lieutenant at its Boy's Brigade company with responsibility for one of the sections.
Major events: I moved from the UK as a child and lived in various Southern African Countries before moving back to the UK in early noughties, went back to South Africa in 2007 where I worked full-time for a private ambulance service, in 2010 I moved back to the UK and married Rebecca in November of that year, I was working full-time for West Midlands Ambulance Service till 2013 when I gave up work to become a full-time carer for my wife who developed a disability.
Future plans: My future plans are to complete a formal Photography Qualification and develop my photography from an enthusiast level to a part-time or full-time career over the next few years
And finnally: I am a full-time carer and fit in shoots around my caring duties but not being employed by a "regular" employer allows me some flexibility in scheduling shoots
