I've been fascinated by photography
for a long time but only started taking it seriously from 2002.
The majority of my work is composed at the spur of the moment, I
like the randomness of finding compostions and freedom of feeling
I don't have to be genre specific. Saying that, I do tend to drift
towards nature and colour, guess that explains all the Sunsets and
I use a myriad of different
analog and digital cameras and carry one with me most of the time
- you never know what will present itself. I'm presently using a
Canon Digital Rebel XT DSLR. More recently my interest in photography
has developed into creating timelapse sequences, animation and video
My background is broadly media
and science based. I've got a degree in Physics and my day job is
in television and mixed media.
I went online on 5th September
2005. The site is called Skys Edge for a few reasons, partly for
my love of sunrises and sunsets. Sky's Edge is a fictional world
from a favourite series of books by Alaistair Reynolds. Lastly,
calling it samtaylor.org would probably confuse and me with Sam
Taylor-Wood, my full name is Samuel William MacKenzie Taylor.
I have sold a fair number of
prints and recently had a one of my photos on the cover of a book.
My work is available for publishing and I can provide single prints
