For almost 15 years I’ve been taking pictures of people and places and things. I started with a 35mm film camera, then a point and shoot digital camera. I thought i’d died and gone to heaven when Mike Hutchings let me borrow a Canon 350D for the weekend. It was as if a whole new world had opened up for me. From the humble 350D I moved to a 7D, and then on to the 5D Mk3 that I still use today.
I’ve only recently realised that during my working career, every job I’ve been hired for was largely due to my abilities as a photographer and an image maker. The people I worked for were (however indirectly) giving me money to take pictures, because of the pictures they’ve seen me take.
So I figured, if I’m good enough for other people to employ me for my photography, surely I’m good enough to “employ” myself as a photographer.
and just like that, Otis J. Gore Photography was born. Well, not really born….it’s kinda always been there, shy and in the shadows…..let’s rather say it “saw the light of day”.
