Story
Tagline
Photographer...Philosopher...Sub Urban Jedi.
Introduction
I was introduced to my first SLR in late 2008, by early 2009 I had quit my job and begun my journey into a new world of possibilities.

The first field of photography that I entered into was Wedding Photography, and with the help of my mentor I soon gained the confidence to set up a business based around that.  Shortly after I was lucky to land a commission for the UK's leading hair franchise and have worked with them, off and on, ever since.

So as I write this I'm still very much at a stage where I'm growing and learning on a daily basis.  I've always been rather eclectic (sounds so much better than random) and my portfolio reflects that.  I do weddings, portraiture, animals, events and commercial work.

Whilst I love all of the above I find myself getting the most excited about fine art and conceptual portraiture, and along with landscape photography these are the areas that I am currently developing.

Recent wedding snap.  Lovely wedding...but a 14 hour day without an assistant took it's toll on my legs.  I literally couldn't walk properly for two days!  What's that about??  Getting old, clearly :/

So just to prove that I haven't vanished off the face of this earth, I've started blogging again.  It's so easy to not get round to it when you're busy, but the consequences are that people tend to think you've quit the business and joined the foreign legion of something.  Anyway, here's one of my new blog entries if you're interested in seeing the different type of shots that come out of one of my weddings http://paulscottphotography.blogspot.co.uk/2013/07/peak-district-wedding-red-lion-stanage.html

Another from Torside Resevoir.  Messing around with HDR and trying to figure out some ways of getting a more natural image.  Think this probably needs a little bit more TLC....but I have so many to edit that it'll probably stay as is.  I'm interested in developing my blending techniques so if anyone knows any cool links...feel free to drop em in :D

+Daniel Nahabedian I don't have an issue with HDR - some I like, some I don't.  Sometimes you cant really tell.  Details in the shadows (and the highlights) is the point really - The eye has a far superior dynamic range than a camera so for my money it has a better chance of mimicking what we see.  Just depends on how its done.  I find that HDR can also give a really nice 3D quality to an image - and yes they can be brighter if you wish - they can be darker - you can fill shadows or enhance.  These are just sliders.  The choice is ours.
