I always fancied having a name for what I do. I’m a photographer, but also a software engineer and an outdoorsman. These three skills combine to allow me to generate some great photographs and share them. Photography is more technology-driven than it’s ever been, and I think you need to keep on the hamster-wheel to ensure that you keep up with current trends.
I always toyed with the idea of ‘Ross Vernal Photography’, but I feel that everyone is doing that and it tells you nothing about their specialism. Scottish Dream is vague, I’ll grant you, but I hope that it conjures up images of the kind of landscapes and cityscapes that I’m making.
So what’s in a name, indeed. I only want to stand out from the crowd. Is that so bad?
