MY JOURNEY

ABOUT RACHEL

I'm a Petite, English lass living in Northern Ireland. I'm also a mum to a beautiful daughter called Bethany. We are very close, and we enjoy martial arts, music, singing, laughter and movies. 

I'm a big fan of Norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flanery, they're both multi-talented, working very hard at what they do. They inspire me to be the best that I can be. To be creative and active.

I had the pleasure of meeting Reedus and I used Flanery's novel Jane Two as a prop for the Photo Op. It came out very well, and Flanery even loved it. They both are fantastic with their fans.  

THE JOURNEY 

My passion for photography started in 2009 as I was walking along the beach shooting photos of my surroundings. I felt so happy and at peace, and knew that this was something that I wanted to do for a living. I love shooting images of seascape, cityscape, and wildlife birds but it doesn't stop there. I consider myself to be a photographer and digital artist. I like creating pieces of art using my digital camera and photoshop combined. My style ranges from capturing what I see to combining images together to create something completely unique. 

I am now in the process of developing my skills in Water Colour Painting. I thought I'll dive into something completely different. Use my creative mind to create unique pieces of art. I look forward to showing you my work as I progress.

The Wildlife Bird photography that I mainly focus on are Mute Swans, Cygnets, Greylag Geese, Goslings, and Ducks. These are captured at Hillsborough Forest Park which has a beautiful Lake that you can walk around. 

My favourite city to photographed was Rome, although I only had a day to capture these photos. I wish I had longer. It's beautiful with lots of history and art. My favourite landscape would be at Murlough National Nature Reserve, and you guessed right, it's untouched with lots of wildlife and beauty. Murlough Beach is the place I fell in love with Photography. Especially as the sun rose and set. Stunning to watch.

I'm grateful for each and everyday I get to spend travelling to these beautiful locations. 

My Passion for digital art came a later stage as I started to experiment with Photoshop. I soon realised that there was a new style of creativity that needed to be birthed. I shared my creativity with one of my favourite celebrities, Sean Patrick Flanery. His response was surprising as he shared my digital work via his Instagram to all his followers. It spurred me on to do more and has led me to pursue water colour painting. 

My next chapter of my journey is being written...
