Welcome to my website.
In my photography I attempt to reflect the moods and beauty of the world around me and draw inspiration from around the coast and countryside of the British Isles. I prefer to take place rather than people and am particularly drawn to water and the play of light on and through water. I enjoy experimenting with different camera techniques as I am always looking for the slightly unusual or different perspective.
Increasingly I am drawn to intentional camera movement ,
multiple exposures and long exposures to create images that do not exist in real time and therefore cannot be documented but which show that the camera can be used as a creative tool to express emotion and demand interpretation.
I prefer to get images right in camera, but now I am increasingly doing more and more post-processing to get the effects I want. In addition I print my own images and get a real buzz out of discovering the differing effects that using different papers can bring.
I hope that you enjoy my images.
