Ian Taylor was born to a life of travel. If we were to summarize all the countries where Ian has lived in, the order would go as follows: UK, Canada, Cambodia, Canada, and now Thailand. It was in Cambodia that Ian started to photograph. Inspired by his co-workers photojournalists and the beauty of backwater Ian bought a camera and a wide angle lens. From there it was a lot of shooting, self learning, getting feedback from fellow photographers and practice. Since, what started as a hobby became Ian’s full time occupation.
When browsing through Ian’s portfolio his kid photos caught our eye. The connection that Ian established with these kids was obvious and it was sincere. This ease of communication translated into great photos, where such elements as subject, background, setting, light and the shutter release moment are all in harmony. We hope that you’ll be just as mesmerized and inspired by Ian’s photos, enjoy!
What does Ian shoot with? To this type of kid shoots Ian takes with him a Canon 5D camera or two, and three portrait lenses: 35mm 1.4, 85mm 1.8 and 24-70mm. In Ian’s words “The more equipment I take, the less I shoot”.
