Graham Ballett-Young, Surrey Member Since January 2007 Artist Statement I am a 21 year old residing in Surrey, England. With a wide variety of interests, from cars to the countryside, my photography ties in well with these.
When I took up photography in 2004, I was using a Fuji Finepix 2800Z to test the water and see how I fared with life through a lens. After finding it more and more enjoyable I started seeking better quality shots and more adjustments in the camera. I currently use a Nikon D70 with an assortment of lenses.
Residing where I do, I consider myself to be incredibly lucky. Living about 30 miles from London, I'm close to the capital and other large towns, but I also live far enough away from London to have a lot of countryside on my doorstep.
My main passions are for cars and shooting. I've loved cars (or anything with an engine, for that matter) since I can remember and whilst I took up shooting aged 16, I found it to be something I was naturally good at.
My myriad of hobbies include driving, shooting, photography, music, horse riding, basketball, mountain biking and webdesign - to list a few.
