Ross Heale-Whittle was born in 1991 in Altrincham, Cheshire, and is currently based in Bournemouth & London. He has exhibited his work with three other photographers at Zion Arts Centre (now Z-Arts), Manchester, England (June - July 2011) as part of a graduating class of Liverpool John Moores University, Commercial Drop, Drop Project, Bournemouth, England (May 2013) and The Gallery, The Arts University Bournemouth, Bournemouth, England. (June 2013).
It was his ambition to become a Network Analyst as he began using computers from the age of five and always had an advanced knowledge about how they worked. After completing GCSE’s and beginning A-Level’s to take him on his path it was mentioned by a number of family members who’s camera he’d used that he had an eye for photography and should maybe consider taking it up. After playing around with an old Nikon D1x he decided to purchase a camera. This was the end of the Network Analyst route and the start of his photographic career.
After completing a Foundation Degree with Merit in Commercial Photography at Liverpool John Moores University, he transferred to The Arts University Bournemouth where he later graduated with a BA (Hons) in Commercial Photography. His work could fall into two categories, sports action/portraits and documentary. His sports action work is his predominant work, that he seeks commissions with. Whereas, the documentary is more for personal work/a learning experience. For example, if there is a subject that he would like to know more about, then he will seek to shoot a series within that area as it would get him exposure to the subject. This will also let him continue his photographic work while learning new information that could further enhance his photography. Read Less
