Over the last few years, I’ve become increasingly interested in photography. Firstly, taking images on my iPhone – capturing moments with landscapes, architecture, and still life. And then more recently, getting the opportunity to take pictures with a digital camera, a Nikon D700.
Through being inspired by the images created by such iconic photographers as Don McCullin, Vivian Maier, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Lee Miller, Dorothea Lange, Robert Capa and Garry Winogrand, this has encouraged me to explore photography and what I want to say with the pictures that I take.
I’m currently part of the Conway Photography Group, run by the renowned portrait photographer Grace Gelder at Conway Hall in Holborn, London. These monthly workshops are a mixture of tutorials, theory, and practical exercises throughout 2019, covering topics such as portrait photography, public vs private, photography ethics and photography and psychology. The course culminates in a month-long exhibition at the space in November 2019.
