photoblog image


Whilst I was away in Nigeria last week I managed to spend sometime thinking about the direction I want to take my photography too. One of the things I want to do more is apply it to others especially in that of editorials. This i will do by spending more time putting together concepts that reflect the ideas and thoughts I'm having with regards to presenting African culture and concepts in a contemporary form.

Another thing I want to do is show more stories by applying documentary photography through the use of the blog. In saying that I am going to stop posting once I get to 1000 posts and start a new blog. I'm considering using WordPress as the blogging platform, does anyone have any experience with it? If you do please get in touch, it would be useful to lend me some of your gems in setting up.

This is great ( although my opinion is heavily biased!) I particularly like the textures and detail in the foreground.
Looking forward to seeing more phenomenal images with the new direction your work will take.

I don't like much photoweddings, but I really love these one.
