Hey there!  I'm Zoe, a young and aspiring graduate who doesn't feel like putting down her camera just yet.  My interest in photography started in my teenage years, when I had access to a tiny little digital compact camera and a modern film SLR.  Hand in hand with photography, I was very interested in art, so most of my pocket money and later, earnings from part time jobs went solely on more supplies and film.  I decided to do the sensible thing and study Spanish and Japanese at University, and soon found that I didn't have time or space to paint, so photography ended up taking over.  Throughout Uni, I was forever taking photos and documenting everything that was going on around me.  I remember using as many manual options on my compact camera as I could from the word go, so I had more control over the final result, and was delighted to obtain a DSLR shortly before the year abroad aspect of my Uni course, and experiment further.

Out of the blue, upon my return to the UK after a year living in Osaka, Japan, I found that I was being asked to photograph events.  Instead of being the person in the crowd at the music gig, wishing I was on the stage taking photos, I've had the chance to be that person.  In the past year, I've covered live gigs, music festivals, school and uni proms, sporting events, club nights and weddings!  Now I've graduated, I hope to concentrate on my images, and experiment more than I was able to when half my time was spent with my head stuck in dictionaries.
