Andrew Dobson: Accidental Photographer
I first started taking photographs as a way to supplement my skills as a designer and provide myself a portfolio of stock photos to use in graphic design projects, but like so many others before me, once I picked up a camera it never seemed to leave my hands. I have never sought to specialize in any particular genre, and truly enjoy the spontaneity and endless opportunity which comes from being a generalist. Having said that, when left to my own devices I often find myself revisiting the early assignments from my very first photography class. It is the basic explorations of shape, color and line which interest me the most, and the abstraction of everyday objects to create artistic photographs.
