About me

 

You know how it is, friends and family all say wow great picture, but you just assume they would say that. I've been taking photos for as long as I can remember, but never really believing in my ability. I'd worked as an Engineer, then a Carpenter and although I enjoyed these jobs, there was always something missing. In 2010 i was presented with the opportunity to change that and returned to education, looking to strengthen and push my photography skills with the view to start freelancing. During the time at college, it was suggested by the tutors that i take this even further and attend University. Although quite a daunting prospect, it was one I took and with hindsight something I should have done a lot sooner. Being in an environment alongside so many talented people, constantly pushed me, not only to improve my skills, but to expand my photographic comfort zone to a point where I am now not only confident in my abilities, but happy to shoot any style or genre. Although currently based in beautiful Falmouth, Cornwall, i'm happy to travel and would welcome any enquires. (particularly from California or the Caribbean). Thanks for reading this and please visit my website for further info and images. www.eclectiveimages.com Kind regards David
