This is a photo book of my nieces Maddie and Darcie. I have captured them at home, day trips and on a short weekend in Majorca.
I am lucky as they are very photogenic - so half the job has been done.
I hope I have captured them naturally and exuding their characters.
Photographing children is incredible as they are not phased by the camera. The result - natural 'free' casual shots.
My work is a journey through using my first SLR camera - Canon 400D. Prior to owning this I would take photographs of mainly architechture and landscapes. I am now drawn towards portraits, particulary trying to get to either know the subject - or not at all. No inbetween. I am fascinated making what may look like an ordinary everyday image into something quite extraordinary. I am using lyrical association with my books - as almost always I hear lyrics to particular songs to some of the images I take - hence the lyrics are sometimes displayed next to images. I have now purchased a Canon 5D MkII - and have a personal project -365 Days that is ongoing. I am also keen at creating photo books when I travel. My latest books will be of my journey to Kathmandu and Nepal to climb Everest Base Camp.
