Welcome to Wendy May Photography.

A few things about me

I'm a hobbyist photographer living in the NE of Scotland. Since I was a child, I have enjoyed creative hobbies. Our kitchen table was often covered in colouring pens, paper, glitter and glue, etc with me happily in the middle of it all creating childhood 'masterpieces' 😉

"All children are artists. The problem is how they remain an artist when they grow up?" - Picasso

As I grew older, I started to experiment with card making and paper scrap booking. Some of my card designs have been featured in card making magazines such as 'Docrafts', 'Card Making and Papercraft' plus a few other well-known paper craft magazines.

Before long, my love for paper crafts evolved into the world of 'digital' scrap-booking and card making. As it did, my curiosity for digital photography grew also.

Going Digital

Fast forward a few years (plus a good sprinkling of photography workshops mixed with hours of study and practise) and this resulted in an increase in the level of my skill from taking what I would describe as "nice, but mediocre snap shots" in the beginning to capturing images I'm much more comfortable with today. Photography is a vast subject and I have only scratched the surface to-date.  I remain acutely aware that I have so much still to learn.

My style

Describing my photography style, I would say it is "atmospheric, old-worldly with a generous sprinkling of modern"....but I'll let you be the judge of that 😊 

When I don't have my camera in hand, I enjoy being cosied up reading a good book. I also like to try out new recipes at home - the truth be known, I'm a true home bird at heart!

At present I'm working on a 'Project 365' (see 7 Good Reasons to try a Project 365).  My 365 includes a variety of photography genres, e.g. portraiture, macro, still life, food photography and fine art, etc.  Below are a few examples of my work.
