You may be interested to know, that during my adolescent years, I never had much interest in photography, or photos generally speaking. I thought that there was so much of an abundance of photos in the world that most people would take just 2 seconds to look at a photo and never see that same one again. At about the same time, I thought that most photography was about taking glamorous photos of Hawaiian Sunrises or Sunsets, and that didn't particularly interest me either.
It wasn't until later, when I discovered the website, 'DeviantArt' that I then realised photography covered a much boarder visual aspect than the typical landscapes of beaches and sunsets, but a whole world of rich, dark, muted and moody colours. This surely grew my fascination for the talent behind creating such captivating photos. Yet my own personal endeavour into the world of photography was put off for some years to come.
It wasn't until mid 2012 that I bought my first proper DSLR camera with the intention to upgrade at some point in the future. Of course, I did enjoy testing the waters, acquiring one new accessory at a time! But for some years, photography remained a hobby, partly due to the awareness that there were at least hundreds of already professional photographers in and around my local area.
Yet I realised sometime later, that I might just have something unique to offer people. When it comes to taking portraits or lifestyle photos, I believe in keeping a balance between art and modesty. I also believe in keeping a persons natural blemishes largely untouched, and poses; naturally made.
Have a browse through my portfolio. I hope you will be able to see that no air brushing was used on any of the subjects, no flash, no extensive digital manipulations. Instead, you will see real photos of real people. This is of course, how photos have been taken for the past century, that is, until the advent of digital photography.
