I have always had an interest in photography. My uncle was a professional photographer and, as a child, I used to see him with all his equipment and get excited about all the gadgets! He gave me my first 35mm SLR but It wasn’t until I was in my mid-twenties and started travelling a lot because of my job that I seriously started taking my own photographs. I realised that I had an opportunity so see things that some people never get to see and I wanted to make sure I could remember it.
A good friend of mine gave me my first digital SLR and some very sound advice and it completely changed my approach to the craft. It was so much easier for me to improve because it was so much quicker to see what mistakes I had made! I have never been a technical photographer. I know what I like to see in a frame and, fortunately, most of the time my instincts carry me through and I have taken some photographs which I am really proud of.
