Beginnings

Published April 11th, 2012

Am a creative individual, who, when at the tender age of five, along with my brother entered into a competition to design a slogan for a well known brand of clothing.



That brand was Wrangler jeans, and my slogan was based around another brand image or rather incorporating a Polar bear into a drawing wearing said pair of jeans with the slogan saying "Even bears look cool in Wrangler jeans!"



I got runner up so I was very pleased to receive my entry in the form of a poster, from one of their top artists who replicated my instructions.



Since then I've always had a uncanny knack of loving images, art, paintings and show an admiration for my fellow peers who like myself are interested in taking photos or drawing, painting etc.



When i'm out I normally point and shoot, but somehow I now like to get involved with the process and I have to say that my fellow 500px' contributions inspire me.



One thing for sure, is that one particular film and camera manufacturer has inspired us all is Kodak. Some of their images have been iconic over the years, one photographer who used Kodak film was the late Eve Arnold, who famously photographed Marilyn Monroe among others or the iconic Afghan girl on the cover of National Geographic.
