A dear photographer friend of mine (Australian living in Dubai) recommended I view Cheryl Jacobs website, (who has become one of my favourite portrait photographers) and Cheryl's site led me here. It's great to see a forum that entertains and educates at the same time - and I still have soooo much to learn.
I live in West Australia and last year took up photography photos after many years of believing art was a waste of time (my father had a big influence on this). I feel so relieved after finally breaking free from past influences - just a shame it took around 15 years of 'hanging around' not knowing what I wanted to do before I bit the bullet and took up my passion.
'People Photography' interests me the most. People of all ages and at all stages in life. The good and the bad times, the fun and the sad times.
I look forward to meeting some/most/all of you throughout this journey.
