A Belated Happy New Year

Happy New Year dear friendly reader! Hope you had a nice holiday season. I wasn't working much in December and decided to focus on some personal projects and spending time with my loved ones. Then January hit and the flu took hold. This post was supposed to go up last Thursday but I never got around to finishing it because of illness. Apologies!

Anyway, it's definitely back to the usual grind but before I look forward into this new exciting year I thought I'd share a small showcase of some of my favourite images I took in 2017. 

This post has a bit of everything. I've got some shots from my phone and some from camera. Hope you enjoy! I'm still looking to expand my portfolio so feel free to contact here. I would love to hear from you.

 

Thanks for your time dear friendly reader. As always please don't forget to follow me on Facebook and Instagram to keep up-to-date. 

The Times I Wish I Had A Camera With Me

 

Another Thursday, another #TBT post this week and it's got to be a quick one. I'm swamped with work unfortunately but I still wanted to give you dear friendly reader something interesting to look at. 

Get On With It

Anyway this week I'm showcasing a small selection of shots all from a time I didn't have my professional camera with me. These where all shot on my current camera phone, One Plus 2 for reference.

Looking at these shots really make me wish I had my professional Canon camera to shoot because the detail I would of been able to capture would of been phenomenal. Hindsight is 20/20 as they say, these shots are still amazing if you don't mind me tooting my own horn. 

If you're viewing this post on desktop and they're a little degraded, sadly they're just not big files to begin with. I would suggest view on mobile to get the gravitas of the photos. 

 

That's It For This Thursday

All the above images are clickable so you can see them larger. The photos were shot over the last nine months or so whilst going about my day. I won't be giving any more context because that's not the point of this post. Sit back, take a break from your day and stay in the images for a few minutes. One thing I will say is you would never guess I really like clouds and the skyline right? If you're a photographer and you've been in the same position as myself, I implore you try and remember your camera on the daily. I know I won't but I can always keep trying. Just a little note I plan to have more posts like this in the future so let me know if you liked this kind of post. 

 

Thanks for your time dear friendly reader.

So This is Day 01...Kinda
This is going to be difficult isn’t it? I don’t know where to start! Well I do but I don’t know what’s more important…There’s so much I never thought about doing or rather having to do..What do you mean I’m more of a businessman than a photographer?! I want to take photos, I want to take photos and get paid for it…at least sometimes!
— Me, early 2017

I'm David

I guess I need to start to put the above garbled message into more context for you, dear friendly reader. I am a creative person, I’m visual, I think rather logically, I'm a perfectionist to a fault sometimes (dramatic much) and I’m a self-proclaimed good dancer.

I've decided to go out on a limb at something my teenage-turn-young adult brain couldn’t really handle 7 years ago and be a professional photographer or at least try to be again. I need to follow my passion. 

 

Backstory Time

I’m currently 27 years old (my other half has to remind me of that quite often). I’ve a BA degree in Photography and a Diploma in Digital Marketing. The course I went to wasn't for me or rather I was far too young to do anything real with the course while I was there.

What's changed? Me! I'm older and wiser and it sounds a little cliche but it's honestly true. In five years from when I graduated the course the things I've learned from my time in college with all the other life lessons has made me very ambitious and clever. Clever enough to make this work for real. 

 

The Blog Title

You might be wondering where my blog title came from? Well it's simple. I thought about the fact that I went to college, called myself a photographer and got jobs for a while and then the work dried up a bit and I made the decision to get a more stable job instead. Well the title comes from my first day in college (roughly) to today, the day this blog and in turn this site get's published.  

 

See You Soon

That's that, the first post of this here blog. I hope you stick around because I would love to share this journey with you along with regular posts of my photography of course. Check back Thursday 26th October for a #TBT photography post and don't forget to follow me on Facebook and Instagram to be notified when I post. 

 

For now you get a selfie!
