This is my quirky world of photography. From Sports cycling to weddings, portraits, and Fun.
My Name is Dave Hayward, and I am a Photographer...
If your passionate about photography you might be on the right site, just browse around for awhile, , get few ideas for your projects, you might be on the right site.
If your looking to sell me something unrelated, don't bother.
Thats is as much selling as i'll do. So many sites out there selling photography services saying how brilliant, and artistic, to the passion of photography, rightly so, there is some amazing talent out there, but thats not me.
As you may have seen I predominantly photograph cycle events, as i grew up with cycling, it is a sport I understand and did for many years.
When I stopped racing I renewed my enthusiasm with photography, naturally going to cycling events was easy for me. Now I photograph lots of different subjects as there is more to just chasing bike events. Being involved in competitive cycling gave me a good grounding for much of what I do in life. When you do a sport you learn so much about yourself, more so that that at school or at home, if it wasn't for cycling I think I'd be a bit of a lost sole now and not driving myself in this new career.
I never had any aspirations of being a photographer, let along a full time one, never even occurred to me that one day I would be running my own small business.Here I am doing just that. I've always worked hard in in the past, but I'll admit that over time I have struggled to keep the momentum going.
In the last 10 years since I started photographing I've found it very challenging, and rewarding constantly learning, and improving, and I'm still very hungry to continue, that I've not felt in a very long time, since I stopped riding a bike, maybe because what I'm doing is so diverse, its fantastic!
