Colin Maxwell

I was born in November 1985, (a year that saw Live Aid pop concerts in Philadelphia and London raise over 50 million for famine relief in Ethiopia, Boris Becker becomes the youngest person to win the men's Wimbledon championships at 17 and we saw the films Back to the Future, Rocky IV and Police Academy 2 released) into a family in Belfast to Mum (Norma) and Dad (Alan), as well as my older brother Paul.

I did not enjoy school much but had a love for music, science and technology. After not doing so great in my GCSE’s I went to Bangor tech where I studied music for three years. (It helped fuel my dreams of becoming a RockStar!). 

I then went on to take a gap year (which turned into two) with the Methodist church where I lived and worked in Whitteabbey as a Youth Intern. 

From here I went on to become a Youth Worker for 6 years in Newtownards and Comber. 

In 2013 my love and passion of photography grew. I started learning more and more about my skill and how I could develop it. I spent some time shadowing a photographer friend where I had some great opportunities to be the second shooter at some weddings. I also was give the great opportunity to undertake some freelance press photography for the local paper County Down Spectator and I still do work for them now.

And that leads us up to now, where I have decided to throw myself into photography on a full time basis.
