I once had a grand plan of what I wanted to do with my website. In my mind it was to be a place to visit to see my fresh new images, informative and entertaining blog posts and updates of what was happening in my life, which over time would all lead to world domination, naturally. Unfortunately, for my site, life has disrupted all of that and as such it has been left neglected and lonely for years.
If you are reading this you have most likely swiped up on one of my shameless self promoting stories on Instagram so welcome! Over the past few years I have dedicated a lot of my free time to that app and generally it has been a great experience for me, connecting with like minded souls and finding an audience that appreciates my particular style of photography. However, recently I’ve felt that the relentless pursuit of validation by means of likes, comments and follows has become a bit of a grind! That's not to say I’m going to do something as drastic as shut down my instagram account, but rather I’m going to spend time exploring some alternative avenues with my work.
This is where my website comes in. Hopefully I will be able to showcase a lot more of my work here without any of the anxiety associated with chasing engagement numbers. I also intend to explore more written blog pieces detailing some thoughts, tips and personal processes which I hope you will find interesting and not too preachy.
I have already overhauled my gallery to include some of my favourite and unseen images which you can check out right now under these categories:
- Street Moments: Sydney is an ongoing series of day time moments captured on the streets of Sydney
- After hours: Sydney is a colour driven collection of moments captured at night
- Tourist Mode: Japan is a collection of images taken at iconic locations around Japan
- Hello Stranger: Chinatown is a people focused collection of image
As time goes on I will endeavour to add more collections and will make sure to let you guys know when that happens. In the meantime, enjoy the long overdue updates!
