How did you learn photography?
I think my first real inspiration, and reason for learning photography, was seeing the unusual and really brilliant pictures my friend was taking when we were at college together. I wanted to do the same and invested in a Sony V1 Camera.
What year was the then picture taken in?
The then photos were taken in 2012. I only owned a 24 & 50mm back then so I hired a 35mm lens and fell in love with that focal length.
What did you do to better your photography skills?
I’ve attended a few workshops over the years to try and better my skills. I think it’s important to keep studying and learning. I try to attend at least one workshop every year. I also 2nd shoot for other photographers during wedding season. You can learn so much from doing this, as it gives you so much creative freedom to experiment and try new things.
What is one piece of advice you would give to a new photographer to help them excel in their craft?
The best bit of advice I can give is just to keep shooting. The only way you’re going to get better is by practice. Shoot every day and you’ll start to learn and develop your own style.
