It was only whilst working for the event organisers at this years World Travel Market 2011 at ExCel London that I realised actually, just how BIG our world is and not ‘a small world’ as most people say. The World travel Market brings exhibitors from all across the globe together under 1 roof for the biggest Travel and Tourism Fair in the UK. Whilst whizzing around over the 4 days I realised still how little i had seen of a lot of the exhibitors stands as its just SO big… and this is only an exhibition centre!! Makes me think i need to get my rucksack on my back – Pronto! 😉
A few of my shots herewith…. Ladies look out for Mr Jimmy Choo, James Cracknell, Freddie Flintoff and a few other familiar celebrity faces too…Enjoy.
As most of you who look at my blog will know, photography has always been firstly my passion and secondly my job. I count myself very fortunate to be paid to do something which gives me such pleasure – no matter what the subject. Photography takes me on a different journey each time I pick up my beloved Nikon D3 and D700.
Whilst I’m out on my jobs I often come into contact with other enthusiastic photographers who often dismiss their abilities based upon having a cheaper camera!? To this I always laugh… as a picture is not just about it’s technical brilliance… It’s about the subject and the moment! The energy and the feeling. What might be nothing to someone else can mean the world to you in a picture, and Vice Versa! A photograph does not have to be taken on a £5k super shooter to still make a person stop, look and ponder.
To that end, I lead onto my new love for my IPhone and the amazing ‘Hipstamatic’ and ‘Instagram’ apps. These fantastic little snapper enhancements are the perfect way to catch a moment whilst out and about.
So.. I thought I would share a few of my snaps from my Iphone with you, and hopefully inspire you all to do the same 🙂
This is one of my favourite landscapes i had the pleasure of producing. Such a beautiful place, and standing waiting for the light to drop was a lovely peaceful time. I hope you enjoy… and remember if ever you visit there, be sure to check the tides or you will need your wellies!!
