Hi. My name's Neil and I'm an amateur photographer and wannabe artist. I use a point & shoot pocket camera, relying more on luck than skill to obtain a decent photo, and a basic editing system which sometimes saves the day by turning a dud photo into something unique and interesting. My artwork is far from perfect and truth be known I'm a lazy photographer, pure and simple, but I've learned to edit and am a master at salvaging just about anything. An awful photo can bear in it the seeds of stunning artwork, it's just a matter of thinking 'outside the box'. I also try to shoot things that are off-beat and unusual, anything but the mundane norm. One thing's for sure though and that's me knowing my niche, and that quite simply is... 'simplicity'. I try to maintain simplicity in everything I do. Also recently diagnosed with Epilepsy, so photography has been a valuable activity to help me manage this condition and maintain some degree of sanity and stability. My sense of humour remains intact however, so I can just laugh it off and get on with life haha :D
The artwork shown in this portfolio is what I consider to be my best work, or rather... the work that represents me best and that I like the most. It displays a broad cross-section of my efforts and the various styles and genres I've dabbled in. Hopefully you'll find it clean, fresh and inspiring, although I look at some of these images now and think to myself 'how naive', and that includes my writing which is 'matter-of-fact' in its style. Alas, I'll never be a poet. However, each piece is relevant in its own way as each represents a milestone of sorts on my journey into artistry. Thanks for taking the time to view my portfolio.
