About Daniel Carson
I'm excited to tell you my story, but the truth is that I just feel like a guy lucky enough to pick up a camera.
Photography all started after I had trained in horticultural. My mum & I went halves on a digital camera for our birthdays. (both July babies) My cousin had done a show garden at the RHS Tatton Park Flower show 2010, which happens every year in July next to the small town where I live. it is cool to have such a big event on our door step, apart from this nothing else much happens! I took some images of my cousin show garden, when I showed friends & family I got really great response and feedback. At this point I didn't know nothing about photography. But from peoples response I did get a buzz from it & my interested level went up. I've always been a naturally creative person & finding photography met I had found my medium! In which to be creative.
I quickly became a keen amateur photographing, local events to landscapes. I decided to go back to college to study photography, more to be with like minded people, I never really thought at this stage I would become a professional photographer, after two years at college, when I was about to finish college and thinking about my next stage my tutor said you should consider university. University for me had never been a consideration before, having done five years of training in horticulture & also being a lot older and much wiser & maybe learning from my mistakes. I decided to do photography in a completely different way than horticulture.
Photography makes me truly happy. Photography is also something I have become good at in life, not because I'm that talented as a photographer but because I'm ambitious. I believe if you want to become good at something you have to put in the effort and time to become it.
After finishing college I started to think about photography not just as an art form but also the business aspect of photography & which types of photography work better as an art form but also as a business.
I started using natural light in my portrait & fashion photography for three years now. Using natural light has allowed me to really stand out from the normal traditional ways of using a studio and artificial lighting. I'm able to create a much softer look than you could get in a studio.
I like to create a relaxed atmosphere and work closely with my models, I feel this approach allows me to get much more natural looking poses which tells the best story.
All this is what gives me my signature look/style to my work, to create something which is eye-catching and make people stop in there tracks.
That's my story so far. Hopefully we can create sometime which hasn't existed before.
