Berlin - November 2015

Hello everyone, it's been a while. I know, I know, I said that the creation of this website would be the start of me motivating myself into travelling more and practicing my photography. I'll give myself a slap on the wrist because I definitely haven't had the motivation I want. I did however take a trip with some friends to Berlin, Germany last month. Here's a collection of photos that I took when I was there. Subconsciously I think I focused more on taking photos that I would consider "memories" rather than focusing on the whole art side of things. But hey, isn't that what photography is about - capturing what means most to you... I think....

During the time I was in Berlin the horrific terrorist attacks on Paris happened. Being in a major European during this time, for me, let to much discomfort. Visiting the Brandenburg Gate the following day, with it illuminated with the French tricolour, was so moving and showed the union of the people.

On a lighter note, here is a song that was constantly in my head the whole trip, I hope you enjoy.


Hopefully I'll have updates more frequently!

Vancouver 2015

Back in October 2014 I saw a video from YouTuber Ben Brown which showcased his time in Canada. Immediately after watching this video, I began researching vacations. Fast forward to July 2015 and I visited Vancouver, BC for the first time with my two friends Callum and Ashley. Brand new Canon 17-40mm L Series lens in hand, I decided that this was going to be where I would try my best to further my photography "skills". I've always been into the idea of photography, taking pictures whenever I can, but I've never really understood the art involved in taking that perfect shot.

Now I should give a disclaimer, the pictures included in this post which are highlights of my trip are in no way that aforementioned "perfect shot", however these are my favourite photos I took and will act as a diary of where I started.

 

I hope you enjoy what you see, any feedback is welcome and I thoroughly look forward to continuing with this blog.
