Hey everyone, I'm Oli 👋

Hey there, everyone!

My name is Oli, and I’m a 24-year-old psychology graduate. I’m interested in anything and everything to do with psychology, photography, web design, cooking, and cats!

I joined these discussion boards in the hope of being able to offer support and a friendly ear to anyone who is struggling with their mental health.

I’ve struggled with my own mental health in the past, and I’m currently caring for my Dad who has severe mental health issues. So I understand how difficult it can be, especially when you’re feeling isolated and alone. But I’m a firm believer in 'a problem shared is a problem halved', so please do reach out if there is anything troubling you or you just want a friendly chat :)

I’m really looking forward to getting to know everyone more.

    Hey @lovemimoon, thank you for the warm welcome :)

    Glad to see there's another photography lover here! I'm interested in all types of photography really. But my most taken category would have to be either landscape or street photography. I was fortunate enough to study at university in Edinburgh, so I was spoilt for choice with lovely buildings and street scenes to capture! What about you, what is your favourite type of photography?

    You are so lucky @Oli How was Edinburgh in general??
    It's a tricky question to answer cos each category always have something to offer! But I would go with nature, art, fashion and street photography! :3 Can never get enough of it! :joy: Do you have a particular photographer in mind?

    @lovem Edinburgh was fantastic, thank you for asking! I'd love to move back there one day.

    That's so true, every category is amazing in its own unique way, isn't it! Oh cool, that's a great mix of categories. I've never really taken the time to explore fashion photography much, but it's something that I would like to do at some stage.

    If I'm completely honest, I don't actually know many famous photographers (other than arguably Peter McKinnon). I tend to just follow local photographers on Instagram. How about yourself, who is your favourite photographer?
