My name is Simon Burrows and here’s a big welcome to you. I am at the threshold of launching my new career, moving from Cabinet Maker to colourBLIND photographer.
In the past I have allowed my disability to prevent me from taking the next step in photography, but now I have decided to turn that disability into something positive. Along the way I aim to promote colourBLIND awareness and intertwine that with various genres of photography.
I started taking pictures when my Dad lent me a Bakelite Kodak Brownie 127 for a school field trip to Caythorpe college when I was 11yrs old. My next camera was a disc camera (remember them?). I got it for Christmas and the flash went off so many times my Dad thought it was lightening.
I live in Beeston, Nottingham and am married to Tracey. I have three children and one grandchild and would really like a dog.
I would like to create photographs that evoke positive emotions like love, awe, excitement and wonder.
So, take a look around the site and if you like what you see place an order or contact me direct if you have something you would like me to photograph for you.
