Becoming a photographer again
"Pictures can tell a story, create understanding, lift a heart and engage our emotions"
It's no secret that an image that most people would consider successful will have triggered some emotion within them. Be that happiness, sadness, joy, fear, anger, surprise, trust, anticipation, intrigue – or even disgust - that emotion will help to catch the eye of a person and prompt them to look at it again.
40-odd years ago I worked as a commercial photographer before being lured into Marketing Communications and PR where I spent the next 35 years. No surprise then that images have always been central to my working life.
So as I get back into photography - and this time only for my own amusement - I'm attempting to create images that have emotional impact, strong images that hopefully engage with the viewer or an image that simply tells a story.
Having retired and now without the pressure of business I'd hope that I might also have the opportunity to pass on to others some stuff that I’ve learned over the years.
