A virgin in the world of blogging. Not for long. I am a photographer, who enjoys social photography – anything that involves people. That includes studio portraits, candid street photography, event and sports – particularly football and motor sport. People are infinitely interesting. Even the same person can appear markedly different in different lighting or in different moods. Capturing what makes a person ‘tick’ is something that I am hooked on exploring. Most people, of course, want to look good in a photograph. Nothing wrong with that. But capturing that twinkle in the eye, that intimate glance, that challenging eye contact, its all about people.
Update 17 August 2009: it may not have escaped your notice, I want to try all sorts of photography. I love digital, I love the freedom it gives you to be creative with instant feedback and no development costs or time (apart from in front of the computer). I never was a ‘wet’ photographer, but I would have loved to have been able to master the alchemy of the darkroom. I don’t think you should feel limited by just ‘doing’ one sort of photography. I love people photography the most, but it doesn’t stop me wanting to dip into other styles.
