About me

I am 17 and more of a film maker than a photographer. I started to get into it because my mum couldn't be bothered reading the manuel for the video camera, so I basically learnt how to use it at a very young age, I developed my skills and am where I am now: sitting in front of the computer. I am putting in some of my still shots from my films though. I don't really have "themes" for my films but I have a friend who says that my form of film making is "sunset-a-tography" because I tend to film sunsets, this is not true, they are sunrises, but suns coming out of the ground all the same... I also need to mention my video camera is a Panasonic 3CCD handycam, I love it to pieces and have almost lost it thrice after dangling it over a 50 metre cliff edge, getting an "under the sand dune" shot and "close up of the water rushing onto the beach" (the latter of which I strongly advise against). I love filming and as a result my camera goes around with me everywhere and I have a myriad of cools shots on the waiting list. I guess I have a connection with still photography in the sense that I try to make each shot I shoot good enough to be a photo by itself, so I guess my style of cinematography is "moving photographs."

    Hi Ella. Emm,yes I see what you mean about the word "honoured", what I meant was "envious" about the sunset/sunrises that you have on your site and what you must surely have every day in Austalia.
    Also I think you may be a wee bit confused about the duck picture, theres to of us Bennett's on the website, God help us, It was Rob (my son) who took our feather friend.
    regards from down under respectfully your's
