I was so pleased with my shot of Jen.

Nicholas suggested I submit it to Dark Beauty Magazine… I’d never heard of them but would soon fall in love with much of the amazingly creative imagery I’d see them feature.

I found the dark, storytelling quality of the images incredibly powerful and I was over the moon to receive an email from them confirming that they’d accepted my shot.

To have nearly 4,000 ‘liking’ my photo on the Dark Beauty Facebook page was unreal!

Having grown bored of the cycle I’d found myself in, this photo marked the beginning of a shift from landscape photography to the creative portraiture and conceptual photography I do today.
