Firstly thank you for visiting; I encourage you to browse, get involved, comment, and share. Become part of my photographic journey!
Who am I?
Some readers know and have met me, and understand my passion for photography, particularly photographing people, buildings, landscapes and much more. For those of you whom I've yet to meet, I'm Chris, currently living on the west coast of Scotland, working a full-time demanding job and engineering my photography-life around it.
I have always had a passion for photography and have been ‘snap-happy’ since buying my first digital camera in 2002 (a Hewlett Packard 1MP which cost £120!). Since then I have continually upgraded my camera equipment, and expanded my experience and photographic knowledge. I continue in this quest to this day and am forever learning new techniques, tips and tricks from some great photographers, and friends, particularly Valerie Paterson and Stephen Kennedy, who both inspire and influence my photography.
Why am I blogging?
Ultimately I would love to inspire others to get involved in, or improve their photography either for fun, as a semi-pro, or even as full-time professionals. I want to share my experience of photography with you and have you be part of my photographic journey.
What will I be blogging about?
My intention is to offer first-hand experience of what I do on a weekly basis, photography shoots, photo editing, and work life balance; as well as offering my own tips and tricks of the trade to all budding photographers out there, whether you’re a ‘phone-snapper’ looking to gain an idea on how to better compose a good photograph, or a ‘professional photographer’ looking for a different take on things.
How can you leave feedback and get involved?
I would love to hear your thoughts about the subjects I post, and actively encourage both positive and critical comments. Feel free to get involved with other’s who comment and discuss your views on the topic posted; all I ask is that you keep all comments friendly and any criticisms constructive. If you want to contact me you can comment at the bottom of each blog post, visit me on Facebook or visit me on Google+, connect with me on LinkedIn; alternatively you can use the contact form on my website to send me an email.
