Dream big, live fast.Dear friends,
Today I had a spare afternoon and thought, "I have been neglecting DeviantART for such a long time, why not write a journal entry?" So here I am. I know not a lot of you probably read this or will comment or even see it, but at least it's here for those who do stumble across it and have time to read it. I just felt like writing.
To everyone who supports me along this winding photography path, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Even if I don't get to reply to everyone who messages, emails and comments, I still always and forever appreciate it more than you would ever know. You all fill me with such confidence and push me through the times when I think, "Why am I doing this?" Thank you, my beautiful army of dreamers.
When I was younger my parents told me that the two most important things in life were "happiness" and "health". And pursuing photography as a full time career and making it into my life has made me one of the happiest little people. I would spend my child

Hello friends!Dear friends,
I'm sorry for not writing in what feels like an age. To think the last entry I wrote was for the New Year makes me feel old, I can't believe how quickly time has flown! Bliss first 3 months of the year with lots of exciting things happening and unfolding. One baby step at a time.
I now officially have a blog: heartful dream Pretty please do leave me a comment over there. I find myself relying on happy little comments to spur me to continue creating blog posts, and I love hearing from old and new friends. [:
What have you all been getting up to since 2011 rolled in? I hope life has been treating you all really well and that you're all happy. Do tell me what you've all been busying yourself with, I'd love to hear what news you all have.
Thank you all for the love, support, comments and favourites. You are my inspiration and I honestly couldn't see myself taking photos without your encouragement. You are an army of dreamers
goodbye 2010.as it is the last day of 2010 tomorrow i have decided that a deviantart journal would be a good opportunity to reflect and write down my hopes and dreams for 2011.
2010 has been deliciously wild. i have had my camera around my neck every single day and it has been the best year in that respect. some days i was out of breath, drained of energy but doing something i was so passionate about kept me rolling on. there have been the low dips too, of course, but i truly think that the positive moments have outweighed the bad.
whether you support me on deviantart, flickr, facebook, twitter, in real life or anywhere else; i thank you now for making 2010 the best year yet. i hope altogether we can keep building an army of dreams and youth to eventually take over the world. thank you for all the support, love, comments, favourites, laughs and new friendships. you have all been stars to me, so thank you.
my highlights have been everything. celebrating 3 whole years with nathan, stargazing on the g
How are you all? I hope life is being good to you all. I'm just dropping by for a quick update. Lately a lot of people have been asking for more actions and curves. After a lot of umm'ing and ahh'ing I have finally decided to release some of my most precious colours for sale.
As a photographer your colours are as important as secrets to a magician. Releasing them is always a huge step into the secret world of how you work and I have spent years playing with colours through curves and actions so I feel they are like children to me.
I have put a few up for sale here: http://colourfulwhispers.tumblr.com/
Surprisingly I have already sold some copies, I had no idea they'd do so well and it has filled me with confidence that my colours are going to loving new homes where they will be enjoyed and used lots and lots.
So if you're interested too then please do drop me a line and let me know!
Until next time!
Our First (Working!) Video.Last night Facebook decided to work, so I put my faith in it yet again for it to bork up this morning. So I'm really sorry that you guys got stupid broken links, that's the last time I try to share anything through Facebook with you guys!
So I've been wanting to film a vintage style video for many, many months now. I finally got onto it the other day and Nathan and I ended up getting some really pretty footage. I spent my Saturday editing it and it is finally done! I may or may not apply for a DeviantART film account, but in the meantime, you can view our first ever film here:
And this is the new and lovely link to Youtube!
What do you guys think?! We'd love to hear your feedback. Sorry that the previous link messed up. ]:

PE: Creating art on CommissionPE: Creating art on Commission
At some point in your career as an artist, you'll be asked to create artwork on commission. Whilst it's a wonderful feeling, being able to make money creating art, it's completely different than selling a personal piece you previously completed - accepting a commission means entering a temporary relationship with your client. As simple it may sounds, there's a lot to satisfying customer's needs, sometimes the best you can do is to say no. Being picky regarding which commission you accept is not a bad thing, but try not to automatically turn down commission because it seems to be violating your artistic integrity, it's hard to survive without paid jobs.

This is the key aspect to being able to work on commissio

PE: Contrast in Digital ArtThis article aims to introduce different kinds of ‘contrast’ in digital art, although most of the following points can also be applied to other media as well.
(noun) - Contrast is a principle of art. When defining it, art experts refer to the arrangement of opposite elements (light vs. dark colors, rough vs. smooth textures, large vs. small shapes, etc.) in a piece so as to create visual interest, excitement and drama.
1. Colours and Brightness
One of the first things to come to mind when we think of ‘contrast’ are colours contrasting with each other.
Looking at this colour-wheel we see that the colours lying opposite of each other (=complem

Leaving Southampton She was in the kitchen when he stumbled in noisily, tripping as he went past the shelves and catching the edge of the table to keep himself from falling.
Pretending not to hear the stream of curses that followed, she kept her eyes fixed on the dishes, letting her hand trail in the soapy water. There was a loud scraping of wood against grimy concrete as he drew a chair and collapsed into it. At this she looked up, and after a moment's hesitation, she said, unnecessarily, "You've been drinking."
He clutched his head and said nothing. He hadn't shaved in weeks and stank of sweat and alcohol; he looked much older than his eighteen years.
They sat in silence for a while. Then he announced, loudly, "Fuck."
She didn't bother to tell him off. She just waited. And jumped when he suddenly brought his fist down, hard, onto the table.
