Wow! What a weekend it has been!
In the few days since my last post, I have been contacted by two of my biggest inspirations in photography, world-renowned, multi award winning photographer, Marius Vieth and the fantastic Street Photography International.
On Friday, I received an email from Marius regarding one of my photos. This was a huge moment for me (I got so excited, I sent him an email with kisses that was meant for my girlfriend!); Marius is my biggest inspiration in photography. Not only is his work absolutely incredible, but his story and path to where he is now also mean a great deal to me personally. He has a fantastic YouTube channel and free E-Book that provides great lessons and advice to progress your own photography, again these are something I subscribe to and totally recommend. He also publishes his own fine art photography magazine called Neoprime, which features stunning photography from young and upcoming photographers around the world. The first edition is sold out, but the second edition will be out soon. To see Marius’s stunning work and links visit mariusvieth.com and neoprimemag.com.
On Sunday, I was also absolutely delighted to hear that my work had been published in the Contributors Gallery at Street Photography International, which you can view here. This website features the work of excellent street photographers including Ronya Galka, Alan Schaller, Gagan Sadana, Reuven Halevi and Walter Rothwell, together they are known as the Street Photography International Collective. Check out their beautiful photos and their personal websites by following the links from streetphotographyinternational.com.
These are two huge moments on my photography journey for which I am truly grateful and privileged to have them enjoying my work.
Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year,
