Back in February, a group of friends and I set out on an adventure to Snowdonia in Northern Wales. We hired a minibus for the weekend and got all our gear ready for a serious photography excursion in the beautiful Snowdonia mountains. But alas, this is not quite what ended up happened! Throughout the course of the weekend I can honestly say that I have never walked so much in my life. Thankfully we rewarded ourselves with frequent stops at the local pubs, even though I wasn’t too sure if beer and photography were such a great match!
Nonetheless, the trip was fun and filled with laughs – a great way to relax and escape the bustle of London. As is the nature of trips like these, new friendships were formed and memories made. We can’t wait for our next adventure to Torquay later this summer.
You can be sure to see some interesting shots from that trip on my blog!
Like a lot of designers in the industry, I too have a love for photography. Even my partner will tell you that I have wanted to develop my photographic skills for some time now, so finally, I took the plunge and bought myself a decent SLR. Friends and family couldn’t be more excited about my new hobby and I must say, I’m eager to learn the ins and outs of my new toy.
After being an art director on many shoots for clients and agencies in recent years, being behind the camera for a change feels somewhat strange, but exhilarating at the same time. I’m relishing in my new challenge and definitely enjoying all this great art form has to offer. As I’m such a people’s person and spend my time surrounded by the company of good people, exploring portrait photography just felt natural, so that’s where my focus lies at the moment.
The above image is just a taste of what I’ve been up to lately behind the lens, but I’ll be adding some more of my favourite photos soon, so keep an eye on my blog if you’re as interested in the ins and outs of photography as I am.
A couple of images from our agency’s latest beauty shoot. Loved working with Gemma (the model), she looked amazing with her fiery red hair! Join me on Facebook to see more photoshoot updates.
A need to create order and rationality in my world inspires my graphic design, and more recently my photography and my digital art. This particular image went through a series of construction, deconstruction and reconstruction… teaching me to free my thoughts of detail and perfection.
Will announce more very soon! Join me on Facebook to learn more about the progress of this particular project – http://www.facebook.com/mario.antoniou3
Loving the idea of going back to those childlike feelings, heading into the woods… running free, climbing trees, kicking leaves… and seeking that emotional and spiritual connection with nature. Aiming to explore these feelings in a self initiated photographic project…
