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.

 

Simon
