Watching the sunset in Island Bay, Wellington

Thank you for visiting The Creative Photographer. My name is Andrew S. Gibson and I’m here to help you take better photos.

The photo on the right is a self-portrait taken in the suburb of Island Bay in Wellington, New Zealand. I saw some beautiful sunsets here and wanted to create a photo of myself looking at the view as the light faded on a cold winter's evening. I used a tripod to steady the camera, the self-timer to give me time to get in position and a shutter speed of 30 seconds to blur the water.

These are the sort of photos that my books teach you to create and process. I created this store and my website because I love photography and helping other photographers improve their craft.

If you have any questions about anything you learn in my books, then send me an email at learn [at] creative-photographer.com.

If you need help with buying or downloading products from the store you can contact me at support [at] creative-photographer.com.
