Statement

My passion is Fine Art Landscape and Abstract photography based around the sea, coast, mountains, rivers and lakes. Although I originally started working in colour, through my tuition with Jonathan Chritchley and inspired by the work of Michael Kenna, I have now moved to working predominantly in black and white. I am attracted to the patterns of light in the sea, land and sky. I often use a long exposure to soften and blur the boundaries between sea and sky and bring the focus on the play of light in these areas. Using long exposure and camera panning techniques I have begun to create abstract images based on the differences in light and shade in the sea and sky. With my landscape photography I like to work with dramatic skies or grey skies where you get the light providing a variety of shades to work with in the finished picture.
