Category Archives: Getting to know me

I just had an interview, and I was so nervous, why is it interviews are like that?!?!? I am just terrible at them and completely freeze, but I got the job and start tomorrow, so a little bit crazy, I have spent the day running around getting my documents for them, proof of address, proof to work etc though I was hoping to just crash in front of the tv on my last day of freedom ūüôā

This week is a fun self-portrait multiplicity shot that I did in New Zealand, it was sooo windy I was scared my camera would fly away, and so cloudy that the sky is bland, I didn’t have my tripod as I had taken a little drive and a bit of a walk to find this place with a view of the Banks Peninsula, multiplicity is something I want to get more into as well as levitation for a bit of creative fun so will see how it all goes, I will have to juggle it now with my new job but at the same time it will be nice to have some money again!

Getting to know G better days are normally Fridays but I was still in Bruges mode yesterday so uploaded a photo of Bruges instead! and with today being the last day of the year, it’s probably a little more appropriate to be about me today as we look back and reflect on the year 2011!

and what a crazy year it has been!

For me the biggest thing this year has to be the earthquakes back home in Christchurch, New Zealand and watching all my friends and family lose everything.

and of course there was the Japan Earthquakes and Turkey’s earthquakes, the flooding and mudslides in Brazil, flooding in Thailand, Pakistan, and the Philippines all resulting in loss of life’s and considerable damage.

Osama Bin Laden was killed, as well as Muammar Gaddafi.

There were lots of bombings and loss of life’s, and the Royal Marriage which I managed to avoid!

and lastly the US formally declares an end to the Iraq War…

The positive part of 2011 for me was leaving my full-time employment  and working full-time on my Photography, and I was lucky enough to get a book published on to Amazon Kindle before the year was out, and of course all the places I travelled to this year as mentioned yesterday.

So of 2011 my most popular photo has to be Istanbul a Moment as it made it into¬†Picture¬†Correct’s Top 10 Photos of 2011

My most popular photo on Flickr and Facebook this year has to be Tower Bridge Light Trails

Here is my first self-portrait I did in my hallway this year which was a success, though probably more thanks to the bottle of wine I was drinking at the time than anything else!

Happy New Years!

I thought it was time to learn a little bit more about me….¬†¬† So now and again I’m going to post¬†a photo of me travelling.

I’m a New Zealander living in London, UK –¬†I have been over here for 5 years now with the reason I moved here was to be closer to Europe so that I could travel.¬†¬†¬† That I have done, I have been to 50 countries with a goal to reaching 100 at least.

I have always loved to take photos and I would always be the one that brings the camera¬†on a night out to record everything but I’ve only been serious about it in the last few years and only just this year got my super duper¬†camera so it unfortunately means I will have to retravel to those 50 countries to take photos all over again!

But for now here is a photo of me in the Amazon on the Peruvian side with a Snake! I love the guy laughing in the background!
