I was born in 1996 and from an early age taken an interest in photography. I started out with a Fujifilm 35mm film camera when I was about 7 years old. As soon as I pressed that shutter for the first time the world of photography opened up to me and I have been hooked ever since. What first drew me in was the idea that a single moment could be captured with the press of a button and be transformed into a work of art.

A couple of years after I received my first camera, I bought my first digital camera. It was just a simple praktica point-and-shoot camera but it allowed me to take new kinds of photographs, and capture new ideas, as I didnt have to wait for my prints to be developed before seeing if they were any good. However, after another couple of years I soon realised that as I was taking photography more seriously I would need to invest in something more advanced. I bought my first DSLR Camera in Bristol, with almost all the money I had available to me at the time. It was a Sony Alpha 350, and it was with this camera that I started to capture more unique and interesting photographs. As you can see on the right, I started taking many close-ups of flowers, with the 18-55mm standard lens which came supplied with the camera. I enjoyed taking these shots purely due to the many complex structures and beautiful patterns that you can see in the centre of a flower, and the many different varieties that are available to photograph. I then moved on to taking shots of animals, which was enjoyable as every animal has its own unique personality and character that can be captured on camera.

Light became my next topic of interest as it is really the life and soul of all photographs, the way it can be reflected off a gently moving stream, or reflected in a window, light adds the life to an image.

Unfortunately, my Sony eventually packed up and I had to buy a new camera, which was always going to be hard as in my mind nothing could compare to my previous DSLR. However, after much deliberation I bought a Panasonic Lumix G3 which I am currently using at the moment.
