I have always liked photography. From the days in school when I took my first few photographs with my dad’s very dodgy Pentax to now where my trusty Nikon D90 goes everywhere with me. There have been breaks and periods where I have lost the passion, but over the last three years it has been getting stronger by the day. This being my first post of my blog on my photographic journey, I though I would go back in time and look at a few images I have captured which bring back the most memories.
One of the first photo’s with my D90 was on a trip to New York. I had just bought it at Heathrow and upon arriving at my hotel in New York, I didn’t bother unpacking but grabbed the camera and took a walk. So this is how the journey started.
It wasn’t long afterwards that I ended up back in New York. This time it was a lot colder but as anyone whose been to New York will attest, the place is a photographic treasure trove. I ended up in the south part of Central Park where I captured the next image.
As time progressed, I started uploading images to flickr and joined various groups. One happened to be Get Surrey which was connected to the Surrey Advertiser and thus resulted in my first photo being printed in their Your Images special feature. It was from the Lockwood Donkey Sanctuary.
Last year Debbie casually mentioned to a friend that I would like to get involved in music photography. Not much time after that conversation, said friend gave me a call and asked if I would like to cover a band. I gladly accepted, was nervous as hell but managed to capture a few decent photo’s. It was a South African band called Fokofpolisiekar (you will have to ask me what it means…).
Like the above few photo’s, it is the start of something unknown but hopefully very special and fulfilling. To end of the first post, if you have read it this far and wondered what I look like, then this is me.
