Whelp, 14 years on, I would never have thought growing up without a computer (to speak of) would see me sitting here using a digital art site as my most visited page. I've been here since DA was born, made an account when I considered I had 'art' to submit 1.5 years later and now 12 and a half years later as a part-time professional award-winning photographer recognised for my work by National Geographic, the Australian Institute for Professional Photographers and other organisations. I'm slowly working towards a full time workload, but for now teaching 4 days a week with the weekend and Monday for photography works well, especially since I get the school holidays to travel and take even more photos :)

I figured for this little 'Art Feature' I'd share with you some of the work that had inspired me when I first started out here, hopefully showcasing work I have collected in my favorites since joining this amazing community.

First up is the first ever favourite point I awarded 7 days after creating my account 'pi' by aaronstj he doesn't seem to be active anymore, with his last activity over a year ago, but let me say that this wallpaper really encapsulated what I thought DA was all about back then. That is funky, geeky, digitally created wallpapers

pi by aaronstj

Next up would have to be 'Forever Lost' by arcipello. This piece threw me into a world I never knew existed. Digital paint. From then on I knew I wanted to create an image like it, perhaps not painting as I figured back then I really couldn't draw, but perhaps if I stuck at something in the digital arena one day it'll happen?

Forever Lost by arcipello

 DivineError holy shit DivineError, probably a guy who despite me interviewing him at one point for a uni assignment back in the dark ages directed and inspired my own decent into the madness that is digital art. I tried to emulate his 3Dness for a while, realised I was crap and I think it was then that I discovered that photography was just so much easier :D probably one of the most chappy internet dudes I've seen. (Does that makes sense?)

Technical Imperfection by DivineError

This piece by NadavDov was one of those shots where I realised that location, timing and subject are key in producing a striking image. absolutely beautiful. There are so many more photographs in my favourites that I should be featuring but I feel like this sums up my photographic philosophy nicely.

Eternal Believer by NadavDov

And finally his piece has always struck me as a fine example of negative space in digital painting and use of 3D. Always wished I could replicate a slither of magann's awesomeness here, but not there yet with my own painting/3D ability.

Submarine by magann

Well then that was a fun little stroll through my ancient favourites folder, none of these images were uploaded to DA after 2007, which makes them all at least 7 years old. Those of you younguns to DA enjoy :)

I believe photography is about portraying a scene in ways that people recognise, but at the same time, have never witnessed before. Anyone can take a photo of a scene, but I want to show the world what I can create through my lens in ways that are unique and yet completely relatable to other people who have witnessed the same scene.

"To show the world what is really there, not just what one thinks they see."

Tag, quality  deviant, you’re it! Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!
