Calvin Cropley first was introduced to art at the early age of eight years old, since then he has completed numerous amounts of courses with the creative process and technicality. He completed Information Technology or Computer Engineering with the exception of Certificate 1-2 and Occupation Health and Safety in 2007 NMIT (Northern Melbourne Institute Of TAFE). Then carried his interest in Visual Arts, he progressed his study through a solid 4 years and understanding the fundamentals of failure and discipline throughout the art.
In 2009 he found Photography classes on the same campus as his previous course, and since having Photography as a hobby it made perfect sense to carry on that path of interest. Whilst studying he found himself gain experience working as a photographer and continued to work with contributing editors and editorials as well as fashion blogging. His main interests are music, live events, social events, journalism and creative personal projects.
After Visual Arts / Photography, he then continued working on his own personal projects and contributing as well as building a collection for the archives. Made several books, mostly unseen to the public. One book, in particular, was presented as the portfolio of his next enrollment.
Calvin is now currently studying at The Academy of Interactive Entertainment to carry on his love for video games and 3D Art and development.
