Here I am, with a new account and a folder full of my favourite pictures. I am a Flickr refugee I suppose, although I will be happy to continue there, but it isn't as fresh as it once was and I have moved on a bit from it.
So I intend to use 500px as a portfolio platform, maybe I can sell a print or license or two (doubtful) and I will be glad to get involved with fellow photographers here as well as "the other place" where you'll find me here
So introductions then. My name is Chris Tubb, known as Tubb when it comes to photos. I am a serious amateur, in the true meaning of the word that I love photography. It is my favourite way of entertaining my mind. I do not want to make my living with it, as there are easier ways of eating one's soul for profit, and I don't want money to lead my interests photographically.
I started "proper" photography a few years ago and I quickly became obsessed with it, moving predominantly to film currently. My styles have been all over the place but are beginning to settle down a bit now after a period of experimentation. I'm based in London and London features widely in my photography, particularly the River Thames. But photos are everywhere like bacteria and I'll shoot wherever I am and family in Somerset and Sussex mean the Somerset Levels and the South Downs are also long term projects.
So I'll be uploading my favourite pictures, as well as the best new ones, and in this new economy of attention I thank you in advance for your time and interest.
