STU GRAHAM PHOTOGRAPHY
ONLINE TUITION - LIMITED EDITION WALL ART
I was born in Newcastle in the north east of England.
When I was 13, my big brother showed me his new camera: a Zenith E.
After warning me not to drop it he let me have a hold. That was it.
I knew from that moment that I wanted to become a professional photographer.
I can still picture him as I clumsily focussed on his face.
At 17 I left school and annoyed a local commercial studio into letting me hang around and sweep the floors.
A few months later I was assisting and printing the black and white stuff.
My career since then has covered most branches of photography and has allowed me to see a lot of the world.
I have owned and managed several studios, and trained about 30 men and women to become professionals in their own right.
Shooting landscapes, and especially seascapes, however, is another ball game.
It is by far the most challenging of all the genres. You have control over nothing.
