A Bit About Me
Ah, it's yourself. Thanks for stopping by. Don't mind the photo, that was peak lockdown hair. After three weeks of growth it tends to resemble a field being rewilded.
So I'm Shane, and this is my little corner of the internet documenting my journey as a photographer. It was 2008 when I first picked up a camera in earnest. Since then, I have sold, bought, upgraded my whole camera universe as I constantly evolve and look to be better each new day I see. I am currently studying to achieve the Professional Diploma in Photography, as well as the Diploma in Wedding Photography via the Institute of Photography.
For me, the beauty and freedom of photography lies in the fact that you drive yourself, no matter your ability or the technology in your hand, to achieve the perfect photo. You do this under the belief that you are always one photo from achieving that perfect shot. Of course, the reality is that the perfect shot doesn't exist only the perfect canvas - Life and the world around it. That's what make you keep on going, knowing the futility of perfection makes you reach for it every time.
I love to take on projects that interest me and challenge me to improve and grow as a photographer. I find it especially important to say yes to projects that border a line of pressure and challenge to rise up and deliver. My real passion is pet and wildlife photography. There is something exciting to me in capturing an unintrusive moment of life that you just do not see in real-time. There is an unpredictability and soul in animals that brings you back to earth every time you look in their eyes.
Well, that's me. Reach out to chat all things photos if you want. If you don't, do have a look round.
And whatever day of the week it is, I hope you have a good one.
