My name is Greg Childs. I am a photographer, covering sports, adventure and travel photography. I have also started to try my hand at a bit of writing / blogging as well.
First and foremost, I’ve a real passion for photography, and I want to use that passion to capture amazing and engaging photographs. I have a real passion for motorsport, in particular F1, and I have ambitions of one day being able to work as a photographer on the F1 circuit, as well as other motorsport categories and events too. I also have a real passion, desire and ambition to find some truly inspiring stories, from all corners of the globe, and to use my skills as a photographer to really capture and portray those stories the best I can.
Today, anybody can grab a camera or even a camera phone, and take a half decent photograph. For me, it’s more about showing and understanding the story behind it. Whilst I also blog and hope to expand my writing skills over time, covering a variety of topics, it is ultimately the photography side that really, for me, tells the story best.
I see and admire a lot of other photographer’s work and that really gives me inspiration to go out there and develop my own skills and passion.
I’m always looking for interesting projects and constantly expanding my skillset as I believe any good photographer should. I am confident and experienced with adapting my photography style as well, to suit the various different conditions and environments that I regularly find myself working in.
I firmly believe that whatever your subject, you need to establish a good connection and relationship with it, before just trying to snap away. To truly take a great photograph, you need to understand the real meaning, emotion and story behind what you are trying to portray.
I have learned to be patient and take my time to really look at things around me. To immerse myself fully in the surroundings. I believe that this approach gives me the best possible chance of capturing the scene honestly, from the smallest details and perfect moments to all the action and atmosphere.
I have started to blog as well, and really enjoy adding that element to my work. You can currently follow my work through my blog.
