I'm Violet, also known as vee, and welcome to my website! This site is so I can share all my adventures I have exploring the Lake District and beyond through my photography!
I'm an avid walker and a hobby photographer, there's nothing more that I love than spending the day outdoors with my camera in tow. I'm happy whether its up the fells, along the shores of a lake or trudging along public footpaths; after all the most amazing views are where you least expect them!
My photography style is quite basic but I prefer to focus on the natural scene in front of me and convey that on camera rather than messing with effects or post editing. I use minimal editing on my photography as to bring out the colours or tones so they reflect what I saw by eye.
My photography interests are primarily nature based, from landscapes to macro shots of flowers and other wildlife that catches my eye. When it comes to landscapes, I prefer scenes without people or buildings in, and I love a good trail/path photo! I also enjoy visiting old ruins such as abbeys or castles and capturing such important history whilst it stands in the modern world.
It was around 2013 that I started spending a lot of my time heading out on walks and capturing the moments with the camera on my phone. I was always keeping an eye out for footpath signs and looking up places in the local area I could visit.
It was in 2016 when I started using the name 'Veelight Photography' on social media to share my photography and my website launched in January 2017. I wanted one place where I could share all of my work, but that was also accessible to my family that don't use social media.
I've always enjoyed walking or generally being outside as a child , and some of my favourite memories involve walking in the lake district with my mum and grandparents. To this day they encourage my interests and put up with me dragging them up hills and whatnot, so I just want to thank them for their ever constant support!
My future goals photography wise is to explore more photography techniques, dabble with street and portrait photography, but most importantly to keep capturing all the beautiful places I visit! As long as I can get outside - whether its up the fells or along rivers - with my camera tow, I will be at my happiest!
