I often get asked how did I get ‘into’ travel photography …
A typical story you meet someone who has a hobby ( photography ) and before you know it, it then becomes YOUR hobby because you get bored hanging around waiting for them to get the shot. So you figure, if you cant beat them then you might as well join them . Then, and I’m not sure how , or when it happened, but you really get into it,and before you know it, your the first one jumping out of bed to the catch the sunrise at 6am.
My biggest photography moment came in 2013, when I was awarded runner up in the Travel Photographer of the Year ( TPOTY ) with ironically a picture shot taken here in London entitled ‘Waterloo Stepping’ and I achieved my dream of being published in Tpoty’s annual year book ( journey 5 ).
Then last year in 2014, I was one of the three winners on Visit Greece’s Instagram competition, and whilst in Greece this summer in 2015, I was delighted to find that my Greece images were featured on the BBC Travel Show, an honor indeed .
All this just fuels me along for my next challenge, to continue shooting and hopefully come up with more amazing shots to share!!.
