Roskobiwan, photographer, Northern Ireland - photo 1 for Bout Yeh Belfast.

Break the rules.

I’ve always been artistic and explored different forms of creative expression. I had been struggling with music for a long time when I decided to get a DSLR camera. Photography was just meant to be a therapeutic thing, but I became fascinated by it.

 

I began to study locations and plan lots of technically challenging photos. Eventually I realised that I was finding a lot of unique perspectives of Northern Ireland and refining an image style that was distinctly my own.

My work is a bit different because I take a lot of my pictures late at night when people are asleep. I often wander off the beaten track, and sometimes I end up in places I shouldn’t be. There’s something about discovering views that other people don’t get to see.

I like to inspire people to be boisterous and break rules. I think humanity is currently on a very dark path due to our current way of thinking and our obedience to powers that do not serve us. We need to break more rules and be less passive about the world we are accepting.

I believe this reality has infinite potential for better things if only more people could see it. So break the rules!

Image - Scrabo Tower Northern Ireland by rskb - photographic print for sale.

Scrabo Tower Nightscape, County Down, Northern Ireland. I went to Scrabo Tower at night to get a shot of it and the moon. After taking the shot, and on my way back home, this view attracted my attention. I like this photograph because of the light from Newtownards bouncing off the clouds, making for a very dramatic looking sky.

The Duke of York Pub, Cathedral Quarter, Belfast. Stone ginger beer bottles in window. Almost surreal in appearance, this photograph was taken at 3am, when the streets were dark and empty. Taken as an experiment, I am proud with how it turned out.
