As for me, my name is Simon Ellingworth; I’m a Professional Photographer, educator and all round creative based in London, England.
In 2013, I was a finalist in the International iPhone Photography Awards, Mobile Photography Awards & Professional Photographer of the Year, last year I was runner up in Professional Photographer of the Year and
Sony World Photography Awards. [selected from over 121,000 images from 171 countries]
Some months ago I started a photography education blog based upon the premise ‘buying a better camera won’t make you a better photographer’ aimed at smart phone, tablet, GoPro and traditional photographers called Lightism. My tutorials have been published by a number of blogs including Lifehacker, DIY Photography.net, Life in Lofi, SLR Lounge, etc…so I guess I must be doing something right!
Amazingly, I’ve been approached by a British book publisher who’d visited Lightism, they are currently hammering out a book deal for me in the USA. In short, I’m living the dream!
So, introductions over, if you’re up for learning some cool stuff…
