- Dr Chris Brown, Canon Ambassador
Photography has always been a bit of a secret pleasure for me. I’ll often grab a camera before or after work to escape for some ‘me’ time, and you’ll find me with one of my eyes wedged up against the viewfinder, trying to capture that elusive shot.
Right from when I was a little kid, I found the camera to be this magical tool and I couldn’t wait to unleash my photographic potential (there’s a story in that!).
I love the process of photography – the challenge, the technical side and just trying to master a technique.
As well of course as being about to capture a moment and have it for eternity.
Clearly I love to shoot animals, and I’ve been lucky enough to travel and meet and photograph so many of them. I also love water, and landscapes, so if I can get all three elements in one image, then I’m a pretty happy guy.
The Mysteries follows a tenacious, and perhaps crazy, quest to chase down an elusive image and provides a glimpse into the kind of singular passion that drives people to reach their goals, regardless of what stands in the way.
