Specialist Photographer for :-
My photographic style: I'm not sure I have a style a such yet. I'm yet to find one that I want to hone. At the moment, I enjoy all aspects of photography so I don't want to say that I'm good at only one thing. I want to be good at many things, and thus keep my options open.
My greatest strengths: Strength of character and my personal skills.
I have been in photography: On and off, for a couple of years now.
How I got started in photography: I've kind of fell into doing this as a full time thing now due to some strange twists and turns over the recent months. I left my previous role in July and I've been doing this full time since. I'm still building up my portfolio and I feel a little awkward in describing myself above as an "Aspiring Enthusiast". I'm definitely not but now I have the time, money and incentive to become a Pro - signing up to the Society if another step in helping me achieve this.
My photographic skills: Generally: People skills and bringing the best out in people (not in annoying manner though) and, my ability to think a little differently. Hopefully this will feed my creative side perfectly.
Photography-wise: At the moment I'm good at lots of things but I want to become great, not just good. I actually enjoy doing wedding photography (as the people skills were made for this specifically I feel), and I love doing portraits also. Ultimately I think I'd like to do event photography and/or travel photography. These are my passions I guess. The wedding and portraits will then become my bread and butter work hopefully. I'll just be happy either way as long as I'm taking shots.
My personality: Rough Diamond ;-)
Geographic areas I cover: I'm based in Yorkshire at the moment but I'm happy to go anywhere - here or overseas.
Venues I frequently attend: It's easier to say what venues I don't like - anything with a low sealing to be honest!
I found inspiration from: Difficult one to answer. I like many images but, sometimes I don't enjoy others pieces of work by the same photographer. I think I'm inspired more by the down and out/dirty side of life, so I'm a massive fan of mono portraits and street photography. If the portrait subject has character, it a thumbs up from me. Think of Keith Richards for example - just one look at that face and you know he's lived a thousand lives - somehow!
Success in photography: Nothing to mention at the moment as I've only been doing this properly for a couple of months.
Hopefully I'll get updating this shortly - and regularly! Photographic training: This for starters and others to follow
My interests outside photography: Bikes - Motor, not pedal!
Travelling Asia (travelling in general to be honest)
Reading Living life
Major events: Married in 2004 - divorced in 2006 (she turned out to be a gambling degenerate - hey ho, you live and learn eh!) Mini Heart attack in May 2012
Leaving work in July 2012 to pursue a more meaningful existence.
2007 onwards - realising that money doesn't make you happy. Material wealth means nothing.
Testimonials: None yet but, I'll update this accordingly when I have some.
Tagline: I have 2 if that's ok. These are 2 of my tattoo's.
1. Kata Ton Daimona Eaytoy (He was true to himself/He made his own demons)
2. Hay Mas Tiempo Que Vida (There is more time than life)
Future plans: To be happy and become great at what I do.
