When I was at school I had no real interest in PE or English. I WAS going to be a rock star in a Metal band. I certainly had the right hair and attitude...
My favorite subjects were music and art. I didn't really understand either of them, but it seemed easy. I also liked science, for the off chance that there might be an explosion of some sort.
I had an eye for detail in woodwork and made sure everything fitted perfectly. I won a competition in class to make a "robot" that could jump - it landed on the school roof... I used to love taking things apart to see how they worked. 90% of the time, I would try to put them back together and they would never work again.
Everything changed when I went to college and picked up a camera instead of doing graphics.
I have been lucky enough to assist some amazing photographers working over different disciplines. But it was the challenge of making the mundane look beautiful that got me hooked on still life.
Edward Edd and I'm perfectly suited to still life photography.
