Photography by Christopher I Black

 

My version of a selfie:

Placing my Fuji x-pro1 combined with a xf 18mm f/2 on the ground, (who needs a tripod anyway) I used a 10 second self timer to get into place & stand still for 30 seconds while the camera exposed. This was shot on the coastal walk in Pafos, Cyprus (my favorite place in the world) during December 2015.

I started this blog back in 2016 as a 365 project, supposedly taking 1 picture a day for the year, hence 365. It failed very quickly, as i’m a location based photographer, it’s hard to travel to interesting places when i had to go to work, i did not want a blog full of images inside a lorry driver crammed office. So i ended up posting at the weekends with pictures of trips i went on, to the Zoo etc.

The idea of a 365 project is to practice taking pictures, getting better and better, even though it failed, it still pushed me to take pictures at the weekend, so it still did its job getting me to shoot. In 2015, i had almost given up on photography.

In November i started a new career as a professional photographer for Volkswagen. It is still surreal, how did i get here! But, i did put a lot of effort in to get this job! Hard work and passion can get you anywhere!
