Ive had my Canon 450d for 3 years now and as good a camera as it has been, I have to admit I had become frustrated and wanted to do more. So with some careful consideration I decided to take the plunge and upgrade.
My first choice in this new set of blogs on my nerdy toy collection is Connor from Assasins Creed 3. It also happens to be my newest addition. Have a look at some of the shots I took and see what you think of him.
I recently got to shoot a Guitar Icon and Rock Legend as Slash performed at the NIA in Birmingham. As a big fan of Slash and having seen him just a year or so earlier at Glastonbury I was incredibly excited to get the chance to take pictures of him as he performed with Myles Kennedy and his band.
I had the opportunity recently to shoot the mighty Rammstein at the LG Arena in their latest tour. I’ve loved their music for a long time and wanted to go to see them even before this chance came up. I was thrilled when I was told I could not only attend the concert but get up close and personal in the pit to shoot them.
I wanted to create my own miniature photo studio at home. I had looked at shop bought offerings and reviews seem mixed. With the pop up tents commonly provided seeming a little too small for me. So I did a bit of research and had a look at some designs online and came up with my own idea taking inspirations from other peoples creations.
I recently had the honour of being involved in the grand opening of an amazing cake shop in Kenilworth called “Sweet As”. I was asked to come along and take some pictures as the previously arranged photographer could not make it. To which I said yes! Especially when I found I was to be paid in cupcakes!
Ok as I mentioned in my first blog, my motivation for blogging at all is to share my photography journey. I am aiming to one day go pro and hopefully earn my living doing something I enjoy. But my adventure didn’t start with that first gig. There was time before that when I started learning more about a subject that had always intrigued me. This is that story…. well some of it.
