Welcome to my Website!

Profile Pic

Welcome to my own personal website - I'm using this as my own kind of personal reference site, it started off with a few code examples that I had written and used for reference and I've now started adding more and more to it to build up my own personal online documentation of examples of my work. Eventually I want this site to become an online version of my CV or Resume, with links to all of my projects.

I'm also in the process of putting together a to do list of things I'm planning to try to do over the next few years, so having my own dedicated site for this means I can update it wherever I am in the world on my laptop when I have no internet connection (kind of like my own personal Facebook!) and update it whenever I'm back online again!

If you have stumbled across this site then I can pretty much guarantee you won't find it that interesting to read! If you do by any chance find it in the slightest bit interesting (or you want to speak to me about potential work) then please use the contact form to get in touch with me!

My Photography:

In Jan 2011 I bought myself an entry level Digital SLR camera, and armed with absolutely no knowledge what so ever I started taking photos... here's what I've come up with so far.

I've been doing some more research into photography lately, and when I start my next travelling trip, I'm hoping to increase my portfolio to something a little more substantial. I thought I'd also build my own cystom CMS to manage my photos, so bought myself a new .com domain and added them to here: www.dayandnightphotography.com

Timelapse Photography

I have also been using my camera to make Timelapse videos, here is a HDR timelapse I took when visiting =Koh Phi Phi island in Thailand in March 2012:

Koh Phi Phi HDR Timelapse
Shot on Koh Phi Phi island in Thailand - This is one of my favorite Timelapse Sequences so far! When I first set up the camera and started shooting I thought it was going to be a pretty average sequence but once the sun shone through between the clouds and the mountains I couldn't wait to get back and see the results! I was extremely happy with the outcome on this one!
