Hi, I'm Taygan. You can call me Tay.
I'm a wanderer; forever seeking the new and the surreal.
I'm curious and creative.
I'm a lover and a dreamer.
Travel, art and music are my inspirations for life.
Professionally, I work as an Artist and Content Creator. This means I am trained and experienced in Photography, Illustration, Design, Retouching, Videography and more.
The long version;
I have always found happiness in creating visual art, primarily painting and illustration, but I found I could never quite find the right balance of realism and imagination through my hands alone. This is where I found photography and retouching - a medium that allowed me a more realistic approach to my image making process, but still gave me the freedom to bring to life the world I imagine. I spent 10 years working and thriving as a creative photographer, before realizing that Photography alone wasn't going to satisfy me and the potential I had to offer the world. This is where I fell in to content creation - being able to offer creative solutions over a range of different media made so much more sense to me and always felt natural; why wouldn't I offer that professionally?
In February 2016, I concluded my position as a Lifestyle and Entertainment Photographer / Videographer for Pacific Magazines, in order to travel and, as ridiculously cliché as it is; find "me".
Six months later and I dove in to full time freelancing - dedicating my hours to not only professional Photography services, but a whole range of visual mediums. Although I'm based in Adelaide, I do travel often for work and leisure, especially to Sydney and Melbourne and even overseas for destination Weddings. Some of my services, such as retouching (incl. deep etching and batch processing), graphic design/illustration and writing, I am able to offer both locally and remotely.
