My name is Violet, or vee for short. I'm 25 years old, currently living in South Cumbria. I have a Masters degree in Crime and Justice, and lived in South Wales for a year whilst studying. For now, I am focusing on my photography whilst I decide which area I would like to focus my academic career on.
I have always been passionate about photography - I always had a 'point and shoot' camera in my bag from around the age of 12 and would document the interesting places I had visited or my favourite things from walks I'd been on. I loved being able to use photography to share these experiences with family and friends who may not be able to visit these places in person!
Walking has also been a favourite past time of mine, and have always preferred rural settings as opposed to urban - this is definitely reflected in my work! As well as exploring nature, I enjoy visiting historical ruins such as castles or old abbeys.
I am a 'self-taught' photographer - I learn whilst out on the field, and use these experiences to improve my next outing with my camera. I also use minimal editing techniques - I try to ensure that the colours are reflective of what I saw through the lens, as well as capturing the ambience I felt whilst exploring that particular place.
I started showcasing my work on social media under the name 'Veelight Photography' early 2016, particularly on instagram and facebook. I began developing my website later that year, with a release in January 2017. Since then I have began to offer the option to purchase my photography as various products.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my website, and to all of you who have supported me over the years. Your feedback and appreciation of my work really means a lot!
A special thank you is in order to my mum and my grandparents for always supporting me and my photography, and for their patience on walks when I'm constantly taking photos! You three inspire me to never stop doing what I love!
