The passion for digital photography kicked in shortly after the birth of our third child, my daughter. Enthusiastically photographing our gorgeous new-born attracted the attention of our sharp-eyed midwife. Seeing an overcome lunatic jumping around with a camera prompted the midwife to ask, "Is this your first baby?"
Answering quickly and blurting out "No” was my initial response then followed by a thoughtful pause I answered, "My third …but it is my first digital camera."
There it began; unwittingly a photography path had presented itself thanks to the value of digital hardware being so convenient. Here was an impromptu turning point that had a novice photographer unintentionally decide it was time to progress interests to another level. From there the fixation had a strong hold and things moved on rather quickly after that.
Realising the web was an ideal vehicle for self-promotion encouraged new thinking, could combining my enthusiasm with photography along with my IT skills produce a viable wedding photography website. Curiosity played a part; JohnGilchrist.com was the natural progression and has been a work in progress ever since.
