Who is Gigzey
Hi and welcome! I’m Ryan, and this little website is my journey into photography. I write, I shoot, and I do all my own photoshop editing. Im originally from Zimbabwe, I moved to the UK 15 years ago and made it my home.
My hobbies are travelling and seeing the world and F1.
I spent roughly 10 years working as a field engineer and the last 2 years studying as a photographer. Although I’m quite new to photography, I have worked with photoshop and design previously having gained knowledge and techniques from youtube and online training sites such as Phlearn; so the change was a easy choice. Studying photography has been a challenge but I have learnt so much about the different aspects and mind set of different artists.
The picture that inspired me to push myself and turn a hobby into a career. When my sister saw this image she was so excited. Looking at this picture helps me see my progression in just 2 years.
Photography has been a journey for me and everyday I learn something new, this is why I chose to turn photography into a career. In 2013 I decided to change my career and photography was the only path for me, I signed up at Milton Keynes College and left my job as a Photocopier Engineer. Writing this makes it sound easy but its probably one of the hardest changes I have been through. This is because I had to get back into school mode, something I hadn’t done for 10 years.
