Hi. This is me...
My passion is photography... not just the 'taking' but the 'making' of an image....
The finding... the seeing... the creating... the printing... the mounting... the framing...
I discovered my passion, many years ago, while at Maidstone College of Art – photography was part of my Graphic Design BA hons. course. This was a time of film and hand held light meters. Of developing in the dark ...and of chemicals, enlargers and photo-paper. Now, the film is a digital processor & memory card – the chemicals & dark room has been replaced by editing software and an Apple computer, but the thrill of capturing the image is still the same (but the processing is a bit more comfortable).
My special love is the observation and capture of a moment in time – be it LANDSCAPE, SEASCAPE, PEOPLE or ANIMALS. I get a 'buzz' out of big skies, moody clouds, crashing waves, textures, colour (and no colour)... and rule of thirds (to the max, sometimes).
My goal is to create an image that evokes a reaction – a smile, a frown, a question, a sense of ease ...or unease? I like breaking the established photographic 'rules' – it feels good, and it's allowed as long as you know which 'rules' to break!
