Firstly, thank you for taking the time to check out my site – its gone through a few changes recently but I have finally got this site to a place where I am happy to showcase my work.
As some of you may know, I changed jobs a few years ago. I was fortunate enough to get a job as a photographer for a popular cruise line, the idea to be able to travel the world, taking pictures and being paid to do it somehow appealed to me. This experience was unbelievable, creating long lasting memories, lifelong friends and a fondness for living and working aboard cruise ships.
Working as a photographer only lasted for a few months – the job wasn’t for me. I missed having creativity with my photography and anybody who has worked as a photographer onboard knows creativity is pretty much non-existent. But what was I to do – I loved life onboard. I love to travel – I still love to take pictures.
A great opportunity came about to work as a Cruise Consultant – working with guests to help plan their next adventure. It was an amazing job to have – I got to talk travel every day – share my experiences (and lots of pictures) with them. The main reason I loved this job was because I got a chance to go and explore, being creative again with my photography. You would often find me off exploring with my Fuji XT2 taking WAY too many pictures – and then checking them over in a local bar afterwards! This role allowed me the freedom and creativity I needed again with my pictures which I could use to showcase to potential clients on why to book with us – I sold the experience through my photography!
When ‘Daniel Vickers Photography’ first started it was a place to showcase me work to sell my services. However, it had to change and adapt to what Daniel Vickers is doing with his life right now. So ‘Daniel Vickers Photography’ is now going to be a place to showcase my work, my experiences and images from my travels. My work will be a mixture of pictures ranging from past work, places been over my years of travelling and some of my more recent adventures.
So, I hope you enjoy this site as much as I will enjoy taking the pictures.
