Permission Request

For Negotiated studies 2 after guidance from the tutors at Glyndwr I am leaning towards the lines of creating a book about Maesgwyn Associated FC and hopefully getting it published, this will probably be done by using Blurb. Blurb is a site that offers professional looking services such as binding of works that make your work look professional, as if it has just come off the book shelf, I have already downloaded bookright from Blurb which has many pre designed templates for you to use which will make the whole process much easier in forms of layout, the cost for 1 printed binded book will be approximately £25 with the option to purchase further copies at a later stage, up to press I have had no response back from the team but will however be chasing this up so that I can at least make a start during the break between the semesters in university.

 

As many of you know, I am currently a full-time student studying photography at Wrexham Glyndwr University. As part of my final year assessments I have decided to create a professional book researching the history of Maesgwyn Associated FC, it’s community and player. For this I would like to engage with everyone who is connected with the club. I aim to create a photograph and short profile of each person that participates. Eventually this book would be available for purchase in either an eBook or with a professionally bounded cover for you to keep.

Please contact me on my personal Facebook page, through my website or by sending me a message and I will reply to you at the earliest convenience.

Thank-you,

Ian

Fireworks

Fireworks displays are something that I really enjoy attending not only to watch but also to document, to obtain images like the ones below takes a lot of patience, a good eye and obviously the correct camera settings, the third photograph thus far is easily my favourite firework image as you have the perfect balance of colours, a true black in the background and with the blue haze from the smoke it shows the it is an action shot, you can envisage the loud crack from the explosion, this is something that I will continue to document after my time as a student has come to an end, albeit in a hobby kind of way as I do not see any scope for any earning potential from this type.

Sports Images 2

A few from a recently documented football match that I attended as the club photographer, these images are sharper and therefore more pleasing to the eye, I really like how my images are beginning to turn out, it is true what they say, practice does make perfect. I believe that my photography is improving with every shoot that I attend and I am finally getting to grips with the mastery of the camera.

Sports Images

Below are a few images of one of the most famous football grounds in the world, Anfield, the home of Liverpool FC, this is one of my places of employment on match days where I work as a steward, this job is a stop gap whilst I continue to look for an opening into sports photography, with having my ‘foot in the door’ I am hoping that when an internal vacancy opens up for a media related position, I would stand a better chance of employment if I was already a member of staff in some capacity.
