I took up photography just over two years ago when I started volunteering overseas.
40 years ago when I was a boy at school my favourite subject was drawing and painting. It was the only subject I was naturally good at. Unfortunately, in those days there were very few career opportunities for artists. I chose marketing as my profession because it was the closest type of work that allowed me to exercise my creativity.
I love photography. It has allowed me to paint pictures without getting paint on my hands and having to wash up afterwards! When I am not taking, making or editing photos, I am reading lots of photography books and enjoying and being inspired by the work of other well known photographers.
