Respecting your Peers V

I have been pretty slack with any blog entries. I have been pretty busy with a trip to Paris (photos to follow soon) and some other exciting news which I will reveal at a later date. But I am back with another Respecting your Peers!
Today I have a photographer who makes me nervous! Based on my home turf, I heard of him before I saw his work. He has grown quite a reputation in and around Eastbourne and seeing his work its understandable.
So, without further ado… This is Will Gudgeon.

How do you stay inspired? Who inspires you?

Anyone who can take a photo inspires me, I love looking through images on, Google, Facebook, Flickr etc.

Also just seeing the change in creation itself throughout the year is inspiring, the colors changing, the way sun light hits areas to bring out the different textures, the cloud formations, it’s great to be able to be inspired by what your photographing.

Yes i sell my work as prints, canvas prints, greeting cards etc

What is your best memory from photography?

The local MP saw my work in a local shop and was so impressed he invited me to meet him, that was pretty cool.


What advice would you give to anyone thinking of starting out?

Do not try to please everyone, it will never happen.

Enjoy every moment and let your creativity develop its own unique style, that will help you stand out from the rest.

Also could you include any links to  your work…


I’d like to thank Will for taking the time to answer the questions and I’m sure you will all join me in congratualting him on his new baby girl Evelynn.
