I'm going to level with you. I wouldn't say I like writing about myself. It seems a little selfish, but I feel it's only fair you get to know a little bit about me. So here is the abridged version.
Originally from a quaint fishing village called Manchester, growing up, I always wanted to be a graphic designer or, if that didn't pan out, Batman. I've been interested in the visual arts ever since my father bought his first Sharp ViewCam. Please don't laugh; it was cutting-edge at the time. I was also gripped by the performing arts bug and picked up every musical instrument I could get my hands on.
I moved down to sunny Cleethorpes with my family in 1995 and went to college to study music technology. While at college, I earned a living as a DJ at a local holiday camp (nothing wrong with a bit of Agadoo) and gained my skills as a close-up magician. Like Dynamo, but he looks a lot better in a baseball cap.
While all this was happening, I started to edit photos and create artwork for various companies and clients.
My love of photography kicked in when I started working as a music therapy teacher for young adults with ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorder). I used it to document those special moments to share with their families. I became addicted to capturing those images that highlighted those hidden gems that some people might miss.
My biggest motivator in life is my family. My partner Hannah and our boys Jack, Josh and the ginger ninja Kyle are the backbones of everything I do. There is never a dull moment in the Greenwood household. It's filled with love, laughter, music and just a smattering of insanity.
