My name is Jay, and I am a student of Computer Science at the University of York in the UK. One of my passions, and something that I don’t get nearly enough time to pursue as I would like, is photography, and this blog is a way for me to share what little photography I can with the world. For the last few months I have been committed to trying to improve my photography, and develop myself as an artist, and through this blog I want you to be able to follow along with my journey.

A collection of my images can be seen on the Images page. This is not the entirety of my work, but the parts of it I feel comfortable sharing as ‘finished’ images. At some point you will be able to purchase prints and other products from this page, when I have more to share and have set up a system through which to do so.

I want to try to keep this as up-to-date as possible, and post fairly regularly, but as I come into my final year at uni, I find myself with less and less time, so do not be surprised if I disappear for a week or so at a time. Most of my posts will be about things that I am working on, but from time to time I also want to take a look at work by photographers who interest me, as well as talk about some more general photography-related topics.

I hope you enjoy looking through my work and hearing what I have to say.
