He was born in Birmingham, grew up in New Zealand, returned to Old Blighty in his late teens and has travelled loads. He also loves the softness of misty mornings and forests which has resulted in some stunning photography: Meet Kevin Mcguinness, a portrait and fine art landscape photographer who has not only created some wonderful calendars with our platform but can also give some very good advice for Calvendo self-publishers.
Kevin, can you talk a bit about your background as a photographer and how and when you took up photography?
I first got interested back in the late 90s, so my discipline was in film, and it wasn’t until ten years later when I got my first digital camera that my passion for photography really took off. Since then I have travelled the world seeing new countries, diverse cultures, beautiful ancient ruins and enjoyed every minute of the journey that photography has taken me on.
24th December, final day of our Calvendo Advent calendar 2015. All that’s left to say now is: Have a very merry and wonderful Christmas everyone and enjoy it with family & friends! To put you in a peaceful and suitably snowy mood, our last door reveals one of Nadia Attura’s gorgeous pictures from her Nature in Art calendar. The award-winning and fine art photographer works with layers to texturise her work. We like the mood this creates, and hope you do, too!
Advent calendar door number 23: Pss, don’t forget to call a loved one this Christmas! Reminding you with this delightful pop art painting from our self-publisher JJ Galloway, a US artist who focuses on depicting the ‘beauty of the commonplace‘. Her Pop Culture calendar is full of nostalgic and sentimental icons of urban life that have been given a pop art twist.
