I've always enjoyed sketching and drawing but in 2008 when I was 19, I was given a very naughty, very scared adolescent border collie named Barney who, despite, being completely untrained proved to be a natural poser in front of the camera - and I started taking photos. Photography is now a bit of an obsession Barney's still my main model but at 7yrs old (as of Oct 2013) he's somewhat calmer and much better behaved... My constant shadow, I couldn't imagine life without him. You can find a lot more photos - and Barney stories over on my Flickr site.
Anyways, the photography is very much a hobby, although my photos have now been used in books, for charity Christmas cards, on an educational children's board game, in calendars, on various websites and as the basis for various pieces of work by professional artists, which is cool. If you'd like to use a photo for any reason - please message me first. No role-playing sites though please - I've had too many problems with theft!
I use a Canon 1100D, with the standard kit lens.
