|Description of your art form||
The photographer’s artistic skill is to interpret visual information from eyes and camera in ways that create photographic images which we find compelling and emotive. To do this we photographers must first understand light and how to capture it. Second we must compose our images artfully before we look through the camera lens and later as we work in the digital darkroom. Third we must learn to recognize, anticipate and capture moments in time that express the very essence of the world around us and of our human experience in this world. The art of photography is the combining of light, composition and a moment, to craft a compelling piece of visual art that forges a emotional link between the viewer and the image. To do this well is difficult. Success is achieved in company with failed attempts.
I have lived, worked and travelled in many parts of the world. With some very young years in New Zealand I was raised in the UK and have also lived in the USA and Canada. I have worked in the UK, the USA, Canada, India and SE Asia. As a young man I climbed rock faces and high mountains in Europe and the USA.
My photography began in my teens with film and a home made darkroom. I took photographs of camping trips and holidays. Later my photographs were used to document my Professional reports for clients. Now I photograph for me. Nature and wildlife photography is my main interest but I also do studio work, people photography and street scenes.
I compete in international competitions recognized by FIAP, PSA and CAPA. Here my images have won medals and best in show awards. My images have also appeared in the local press and in juried print shows. I do not use social media. To view more of my images contact me at email@example.com
