As a photo hobbyist for six years I have always relied on social media, and it has always served me well in the past. But there's a certain lack of control... You can only post certain pictures certain places, or you can't write a blog along with the picture etc. Building a website was the logical choice for me to streamline everything I love, and make it easy to find in one place.
Another reason I decided to create my own website was appearance. There's a certain professional feeling from having your own website, something that can't be recreated when linking to long social media URL's or sub-domains.
I haven't quite decided how often I'm going to write on this blog, but I will definitely be using it as an insight to my photography and and personal projects, and I look forward to any comments anybody has!
