I have been a late convert to photography with other hobbies and pastimes coming before, along with a job that required weekly travel overseas. But I guess I have been trying to give it more time for about 7 years now starting with a holiday to Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos, followed by a trip to New Zealand.
I would class myself as a landscape photographer and have tied to shoot the ‘classic’ views in the various locations I have visited; however, I have always been a bit disappointed with my results as I have found it hard to (re)interpret locations that have been shot by so many other before. However, on a trip to Scotland in 2021 I was asked do I want to be a photographer or an artist with a camera? This then set me off on a path to try to do things differently and I am still trying to find out what different means to me :-)
