Fujifilm UK have showcased me and my work on this months ‘Through My Eyes’ app on their Facebook page. I’m extremely happy about this, and they fact they have me along side some other really great Photographers.
After recently getting a role of film developed (one that I had been using every so often throughout the last month) I took a look at the photographs I had taken and it got me thinking. After two years in belfast I secured my Level 5 HND in Graphic design. Whilst there I met a lot of very cool and exciting people, people that I hope I never fall out of touch with, whilst I am moving to Blackpool to study Graphic Design and get a BA Honors degree which will benefit me greatly I will still greatly miss Belfast and the times I had there. It will be a very big move for me, having never moved more then 30 miles away from my home town before, but these are the things you have to do, especially if I want to live and work in New York in the future. I also can not wait to get meeting new people in Blackpool and making life long friendships which them, so watch out Blackpool here i come!

Certainly these days it would be completely stupid if i was using a film camera as my main piece of gear for professional work. The cost of film roll plus the limited amount of shots per roll would make my job a hell of a lot harder. However i do not think the need for film is dead, and i definitely do think it will be something that we will continue to use for years to come. But why is this expensive, out of date method still being used? For me it is the feel of using a completely manual camera, loading the film, arming the camera waiting for the photos to be developed. I use film solely for taking photos of my personal life. It just seems to make the images have more personality to them, and because a roll of film is so limited in space each shot is only taken if it is going to mean something. Of coarse film is quite trendy these days and i have no problem shooting with film for a client if its the desired look they want. If you havent worked with film before i strongly urge you to do so, the outcome is usually very rewarding and enjoyable.
Just finished a lovely relaxed photo shoot for the belfast magazine Big Buzz, the article will be about the Belfast alternative model Kez McAteer Flanagan. The issue should be out next month so please pick up a copy and check it out! Once the magazine is released i shall ad the photos to my portfolio
