I’ve always loved photography. A few years ago I was going to give up journalism to study it full time at Westminster University but for one reason or another I decided not to. But that didn’t dampen my love of taking photos.
I was recently inspired by the guy behind http://icon-a-day.com/ to try and improve my photography skills. So I’ve decided to take on a project. Every day for the next year I will publish a portrait on my various social networks.
I know this is going to be a massive challenge, and there will be days where I won’t have anyone to photograph, or even want to pick up my camera. But by making it public I hope to hold myself accountable – and need the help of friends and loved ones to get me there.
I also want this to be a way for me to re-connect with people who I care about but have drifted away from. So if you’d like me to come and take yer picture, holler at me. So, here goes. Day 1. Self Portrait. Shot in Highbury, London.
