I had a bit of a life-changing event in 2021 which led me to get back into an old hobby of mine, photography. This page aims to cover what I get up to with a camera, from shots on the beach to internet-cat-pictures, to astrophotography of deep space objects.
Here's a quick collection of the photographs I've taken. Click a photo below to see it in detail or head over to my flickr to browse them all by album, category and more.
I'm Blake and I like to tinker with things and make stuff. When I'm not programming or developing random systems, I'm playing with electronics, doodling bits of art, 3D modelling or sculpting and painting things or nerding out watching sci-fi or horror TV.
From 2001 I worked in the games industry, eventually specialising in tools to aid in the development of video games and their engines. In 2011 I left the industry and teamed up with a few other talented composers to utilise my knowledge to help build the company 'Spitfire Audio'.
I also periodically compose soundtracks for video-games and have worked on titles such as The Stanley Parable and Portal Knights. You've probably also heard my music in random TV commercials at some point.
I use various bits and bobs to capture these pictures:

I've also got a collection of lenses (and have sucumb to the addiction of vintage lens collecting):
