Makayla Graham Photography?

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

I think that my pictures have changed heaps since i first got my digital camera, and since i got photoshop. 

I have absolutely loved my camera to bits and take it everywhere! It is my favourite birthday present by far!

Lately i am feeling like i have developed a bit of my own style... I love black and white & also bright, colourful, happy pics - using natural light.

I think the collage below is a good representation of the pictures that i like to take...

I wanted to share some of these recent pics i have taken to show how my photography has changed since i first started out with my DSRL.

My papa

My practice models are still the same! :p

This is the shot that recently won me a camera and a printer. I had better start paying them a bit more ;)

When i started taking pictures i never had the intention to become a 'photographer' as such. It was only for fun. I was asked to do a few shoots for friends, and people then asked if they could pay me for shoots. Things have kind of snowballed from there. And especially since i started my facebook page.

I would love to become a professional photographer one day and i guess that is why i am studying photography at tafe so i have that qualification.

Back in December i started a photography blog and in March i started a facebook page. I would love it if you would support me and follow one or both and keep track of what i am up to :)

I am so overwhelmed and grateful for all the support and encouragement everyone has give me so far, thanks everyone :)

I never dreamed that i would be able to do something that i love so much for a job one day, but it seems that it could actually be heading that way.

But i also think that it is important to have a university degree in something - especially these days.. I have made a pretty big decision about uni lately as well, and i will be sharing that very soon.

Makayla Graham Photography still sounds so weird! I find it so odd that people trust me to take their photos and that they want to pay me for it. But - i LOVE doing it and hope that one day i can make it into something bigger than it is.

That last photo is really gorgeous - I love the way the cat is gazing up at her. Another competition winner? Looking forward to hearing your plans for uni. As you travel along in your photography journey you will gradually develop a style unique to you that people will seek you out for. xxx
