Graduating in 2005 with a Degree in Digital and Lens Media from University of Hertfordshire, I have continued with my photography work trying to find new and exciting ways to create beautiful imagery.
Focusing on my love for cars I have created a series of images taken in a Scrap Yard. The images show the life and beauty still within these forgotten oldies.
I love the way nothing stays the same and no matter how many times you visit there is always something new to photograph. Every car has a story to tell, if they could speak I wonder what they would say.
These images invite you into a world of imagination.
I have continued to develop new skills since leaving University and I have completed a series of Adobe Photshop and Illustrator tutorials and short courses including a BIPP course in
Commercial Photography - Advertising, Automotive & Travel with Martyn Goddard
This course covered the following
• Tracking & Panning shots
• Drive through action
• The driver at speed
• Rig action photography
• Vehicles in the environment
It has given me the knowledge to photograph moving vehicles as well as creating the illusion of speed using a rig on the exterior of the vehicle. I can also use this knowledge to improve my sports photography.
Since 2007 I have worked alongside Richard Unger as an assistant photographer at Polo matches and dog shows. I was responsible for setting up lighting and computer equipment, processing, printing and generating sales. I also used this opportunity to gain experience taking action shots.
As my Photoshop knowledge has developed I have started to create photo manipulations and Fantasy images using my own photo's as well as stock images.
