My passion for photography is indescribable it has always been what i have wanted to do from a young age.
My favourite genre in the photography profession is sports, i would love to do sports photography because of my background, i physically play football and have done so since i was young so i think sports photography would be an amazing route for me because of my unique knowledge about the sport, having a passion for sports and photography, combining the two and making a succesful career out of it would be amazing.
I am very focused on my future in photography, my aims are to achieve a degree and further my education into university and in the long run work for a successful photography company.
1. I took this image in London, In my opinion it is the sky that makes the photograph. The way the colour of the sky reflects onto the sea gives the image more depth and makes the photograph look surreal.
2. This photography i especially enjoy because of the lights from the car, again this was taken using a Canon 500D. I love this picture because there was no planning it, it was taken on the way to Gatwick airport for my holiday and i thought the setting was good so i got out and took the picture, I think it is one of the best photographs i have taken.
3. This is a very special photograph to me because it was the first football match that i had gone to see live and i had captured this amazing photograph. This was taken in 2008, Glasgow, Celtic v Manchester United in the Champions league. In sports photography i thrive on the atmosphere and it drives me to capture memorizing photographs.
4. This is a picture that was taken when me and my class within City College went on a photography trip to the Brighton Pier for one of the tasks within the photography unit. I took this because i think the picture is just stunning, i love the way that the sun is reflecting onto the sea. I have digitally enhanced this photography using Photoshop, i think that it is one of the advantages that photography has allowing you to choose different colours to put into your images.
