I'm a young photographer who was born and raised in the city of Stoke-on-Trent. Raised by my mother, I was always taught a set of simple principles:
1. Treat others how you'd like to be treated and be kind always.
2. Never take advantage of anyone.
3. If you love something so much, always chase it.
It took me a while to discover my love for photography... But I guess it was always there at the back of my mind. As a kid growing up, I always loved the outdoors! from going fishing, to bike riding and even just long walks in the countryside, it was just refreshing.
I found it difficult to gather the confidence to really get myself out there and actually pursue what I could possibly love! One of my very close friends kept saying to me "Just do it! how do you know what people will think if you don't show them what you can do!?".
From this point on, I just went for it! I purchased my first camera *Canon 70d* and I haven't looked back since!
My true inspiration was a photographer by the name of Peter McKinnon, who also motivated me to actually get out and capture the moments of nature I'm so passionate about.
