Blown A Wish Photography is Deborah Cardinal, an art photographer based in Sutton Coldfield, just north of Birmingham in the UK.

I called my photography Blown A Wish after a song on the album Loveless by My Bloody Valentine, who are one of my favourite bands.

These days my main passion is film photography although I enjoy digital too. My love of photography started in my early twenties and has gradually become an enormous part of my life. Mostly, these days, I shoot nature, bird and still life photographs, but I also enjoy taking creative conceptual images. I am very fond of experimenting with different film cameras and types of film. I have a home darkroom where I develop black and white film, and make prints.

I do stock photography and I have lots of images available with Getty Images, as well as a small selection with 500px Marketplace. You can see a selection of some of my popular stock images here.

I sell a selection of prints and products through Society6, and I am also happy to take custom orders (payment is via PayPal only). You can get in touch with me by emailing me at 

I can be found in several places online; on Flickr and 500px and Instagram, where I post a mixture of my photographs. I also recently set up a separate Instagram and Tumblr called Wanderings on Film where I post all my favourite film photographs.
