My Top 10 Images of 2017
Firstly, I'd like to apologise for the lack of blogs over the last year. 2017 was a year that in all honesty I was glad to see the end of due to the loss of my father and with that I lost a lot of my passion for photography. I was still working as a photographer but personal projects didn't exist throughout the year which is new for me as I always have something on the go. My passion for photography is still here but I'm having to rebuild it brick by brick and it's not something that happens over night. I'm finding new inspiration in places I wouldn't generally look for it, Instagram & Facebook is a sea of the same styles regurgitated over and over so these places are not helping. My passion isn't coming back by looking at other peoples images but by people themselves, I'm very inspired by seeing people who are passionate about what they do and that doesn't always have to be a photographer. It could be a chef, painter or a woodworker that may have inspired me. I still feel being a photographer is a craft and should be treated as such, so that's why I find a lot of admiration for those who work hard with their hands to create something beautiful which after all is what I'm trying to do.
Of the images I did get during 2017 below are my 10 favourite images that I feel captured my year, they are in no particular order. I'm very excited for 2018 and seeing it with fresh eyes and a new approach that will hopefully push me more to get out with the camera to work on my personal projects.
