Clive Rowland

English amateur photographer living in China.

I gained a city and guilds qualification in photography in 2008 and although the qualification means virtually nothing, the guidance and inspiration I received from my classmates and especially my tutor defined the way I shoot today. I always thought of myself as an architectural or nature photographer, shooting empty buildings and the occasional street scene or landscape, from encouragement during my education I went against everything I thought I was and attempted people photography. 3 years later, 90% of everything I have shot since has been people photography. Thanks Dave!

I managed to get a few slots (and free tickets!) to various music festivals in the UK, which has bought me many great photo opportunities and given me a lot of enjoyment in the few years I have done it, however life has dealt me a few unusual cards and I have ended up living in China, which by all means is a people/street photographers heaven.

A much larger selection of my work is available on my flickr site. The shots you see here on 500px are more of a carefully picked selection, rather than a blog of everything I shoot on a daily basis.

If you wish to use any of my work, either for commercial or non commercial purposes, please contact me, I am very happy to see my shots used.
