Five favourites

Five favourites

As a designer and photographer, reflecting over creative conclusions throughout the past year is always good. At this point right at the start of a new year, I thought it may be good to show my favourite five photographs from last year that I have taken. These have been taken on my camera and phone. These are not in any particular order. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Bonus favourite: This was part of a project at university within my second year. We were given the task of creating an exhibition of third years’…Read more
Processing design and creative thinking.

Processing design and creative thinking.

We have just been given a new brief, and we start the process of designing again. As a process, design is one I'm passionate about, the fact that we are on a journey throughout excites me, but, it can be a funny thing really.

You may remember the photo I took below, from a previous post. I often find that I can get ideas for photographs when I'm on my tour of the local area.

This is the resulting photograph, from my original idea. ©  2014 Matt Finch. All rights reserved.Read more

They were here in Ipswich, as a stop off point during the classics race from Holland. Starting in Rotterdam earlier this week, and leaving from Ipswich to go on the final leg ending in Amsterdam. A total of 24 tall ships were on the waterfront and over 800 people on them on board. As we walked past, the…Read more

Don’t let them lay dormant!!!

Photography is something I have enjoyed for the past couple of years, both in study and as a creative practice for personal projects. As I was saying in the post before, I often think about the use of the photographs. Is it really worth taking them in many instances, as they will just sit there on a hard drive and not be seen by anyone.Surely, this is not how I should work, both as a photographer, but also creatively. While taking photographs, I use it as social time usually. A number of my…Read more
