Nigel Bailey, Southampton Member Since December 2009 Artist Statement First off - a confession. I am totally addicted to my camera. Generally, that's probably not an entirely bad thing if you happen to be a photographer!
Got my first little Kodak camera back in about 1971 - gosh, that really makes me feel old; but I was pretty young at the time. Cut my teeth on 35mm cameras in the school photographic club and loved it. Printing my own pictures in the club darkroom with real chemicals!
A lot has changed since - not least in the world of photography. I first went digital nine years ago and bought my first pro camera late 2008. It's a big fat Nikon D300 will a whole load of trimmings, and it's a great piece of kit.
I take all kinds of pictures - anything from dreamy flowers to moody landscapes to contemporary portraits and weddings.
I love the technical challenge that photography offers and combining this with the creative part of my brain. The best photography requires excellent technique, but just as importantly a good eye and the ability to come up with ideas.
I hope you like my work and feel inspired to place an order, or even commission me for a special project! Find out more on my website at www.reflectphotography.co.uk
