Who am I?
I am Kai Shepherd, I'm from England and I currently live in a city called Norwich but originate from North Tyneside.
What do I do?
I study Games Art & Design at Norwich University College of the Arts, I also have a job as a writer for Push Start. Art wise I do basic conceptual work and 3D but mainly I do photography.
Why do I do what I do?
Games Design has always been something I have wanted to do. For as long as I remember I have dreamt of becoming lead story designer on a Legend of Zelda game or Final Fantasy. When I was little I used to fill books up with idea's and drawings and stories for games and hoped one day I could turn it into a reality. Nothing has changed. My dreams are the same albeit my lifestyle and surroundings are completely different.
As for the artistic side with photography, I have always found the old saying "A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words" to be so correct. There are those that believe taking a photo is as simple as finding something and pushing a button, but personally I believe it so much more. To take a truly good picture - you need to really show the moment through the lens. Snap the shot at the right time, at the right angle, in the right lighting, at the right object with the right emotions. There is a billion levels to photography & I honestly believe there are photo's that people still haven't captured out there and some that will only ever be seen once. One of the biggest inspirations to me is the thought that photographs are memories in physical form. Memories are something that really count.
What can you expect from me?
If you are looking at this page and see massive gaps or times where I am not active, don't be surprised. Just stick around long enough to see me continue to blow your artistic minds. You can expect a few drawings as I "hopefully" get better. You will see the best of my photography skills. I also hope to upload writings as there seems to be a call for it on here and I adore writing deep down.
Why have you asked yourself questions instead of doing a bio?
Well brain, that's a good one. I sat down and contemplated what to write for around forty minutes and when I erased what I wrote for the sixth time, I realised something. This is meant to tell people who the hell I am and what I am doing here. I thought that a questionnaire would be a great place to start. Of course if anyone is very interested in anything not mentioned - they can always message me or leave a comment on my profile. ^^
