In this week’s photographer interview we’re featuring UK photographer Nicholas Creevy.
How did you first get into photography?
I first brought my first DSLR around 4-5 years back while I was learning graphic design at college. The main reason for my purchase was to take some stock photos to use in my graphic design work and by fluke I captured a split second image of a relative of mine, a few people said I had a skill for taking general portraits. Even tho I knew this was a fluke I decided to try my skills in the fashion industry so I signed up to a modelling website (ModelMayhem) and set up my first photo shoot with a model, it just went all from there!
What do you know now that you wish you knew when you started?
I really wish I prepared for how competitive the fashion industry is back when I first started that I have come to know now, It is like a school playground where you have the cool kids at one end and the no-so-cool kids at the other end, Along with that one person in the middle!
What type of camera do you use most?
What is your favorite lens?
Could you share a favorite recent image and tell us a little of the back story behind it
The story behind the image above is really the way my style is going, I took this while I was location scouting for a upcoming shoot I had planned at the time. So I would defiantly this is one of my favorite as this is reflecting me now!
Do you have a tip for beginner to intermediate photographers that will help them improve their photography?
Never stop experimenting, always try to push your boundaries every day. I have seen some photographers around whom have had their style handed practically to them from another. Trust me, developing your own style and seeing it’s hard work pay off is worth so much more than having it handed to you.
