It was only when I moved back to England from the Middle East that I began to develop an interest in photography. I assume this was due to the vivid greens and blues of my surrounding, which can be seen as a central theme to many of my photographs. My school didn't offer photography as an academic class, but I started to use the darkroom in my free time and attend some of the extra curricular sessions. Shooting with film was satisfying, but the use of a digital SLR quickly boosted photography's appeal to me. Conceptual photography is a style that greatly appeals to me, and I like amalgamating surreal ideas with interesting locations. Minimal environments with plenty of colour seem to suit the style I strive to achieve I have now been shooting for about four years and hope to include photography in a future career. I am currently studying Philosophy at Southampton University, which I hope will combine well with my photography.
