About the photographer: |
I've had a camera in my hands since I was ten years old, and I've never been able to see myself doing anything else with my life (unless you count my wanting to be a paleontologist when I was seven). My main interests lie in wildlife, documentary and portrait photography, as well as a recently-developed love for fine art and conceptual work. Formally studying my passion full-time has caused me to push the boundaries of the medium itself, and as one of my lecturers so eloquently put it: "If you become comfortable with where you are as a photographer, sell your camera and start doing something else."
What I do:
Portraiture (both studio and environmental), documentary and wildlife, as well as beginning to branch into fine art photography. In my spare time, I'm an amateur novelist and practice traditional art as a hobby (painting and pen-work mostly). I'm also an avid reader, with more books in my possession than items of furniture and clothing combined.
Long term goals:
Branch into professional documentary work
Travel as part of my career
Do work for Time, National Geographic or Getty Images
Backpack across the world
Create social awareness through my documentary work
To have one of my works featured on the covers of Time or National Geographic
