About the Author

My name is Will.

Every year I research different places to go and my ‘I should go here’ list gets longer. I add it and then start thinking of the best way of getting around when there, be it cycling, backpacking or vehicular.

The Exploration Journal is my way to document my travels to these places and my development as a photographer.

Digital Art

Back in 2011 I joined DeviantArt and I became interested in digital art using Photoshop. I started out using a mouse with photoshop and then upgraded to a small Wacom tablet during university. I’ve created a timeline below so you can see my journey through art, from following tutorials to the more recent pieces where I have settled on my own style of painting.
