touchingportraits

I have always loved visual arts and many times I would find myself looking at photographs, paintings, and analyzing them in my mind ... I would use my different cheap snapshot cameras to try create something; to try my artistic side - however I wouldn't be too happy with the results and I knew that a (D)SLR would give me that extra power to free my mind! But what do you do when you don't have the money to buy one??

I waited ... and waited .... and waited! And the day came when Argos card 6 months interest free came into play! Smile Little I knew how much more money I would come to spend on lenses, tripod, etc. Well ... too late! I had the bug already!

I am not sorry for the investment as photography is not only my hobby, rather a tool that allows me (in my spare time) to express my view of the world; I try to express situations, to show people at their best, to portray the beauty of nature. Also, I particularly came to love B&W for its power of story telling - no color, no distraction!

I hope you enjoy my portfolio at least as much as I enjoy quite few others on this site!
