Pat. Photographer. Not postman.
I never set out to be a photographer (nor a postman), it kinda just happened. My grandpa never gave me a camera at the age of 3 where I grew up and fell in love with photography; some days I simply hate it.
ShootingRAW was originally a nude photography competition based on the Naked in the House (NSFW) competition in Canada but after several years running that competition it was time to make a change.
I’m a big believer in group collaboration and learning and pushing yourself to do something different and challenging. So here we are!
My name is Adam and I like pie.
I have been working IT for the last 5 years. 3-4 years ago I got into photography as it is something I have always loved and respected. I remember my first festival watching the photographers, thinking how lucky they are. So I made it happen. I became an event, nightclub and festival photographer for 2 years. Its not as cool as you think, but still fun.
From there I got in to model/fashion photography. I had my own studio for a while in Melbourne before I moved back to Brisbane. I am taking it slow picking photography back up in Brisbane.
Really hoping this competition can inspire others like it is inspiring me.
