JOURNEY

I have had an interest in photography as long as I can remember. Images simply appeal to me. Images provide a means to have a different perspective on reality. They provide a means to express oneself and bring a personal vision or a perception to life. Photography is a fantastic vehicle to pursue this and provides limitless opportunities to explore.

The advent of digital photography gave a new lease of life to my life long passion. It has made the 'dark art' of photography far more accessible and immediate. I also now have full control from capture to print. Post processing and printing are for me as enjoyable and fulfilling as standing in the field taking the image.

My photographic journey continues. It never amazes me how much you learn about what you don't know. Every field trip has the ability to put into to perspective what it takes to be a great landscape photographer. Each time in the 'digital darkroom' reveals limitations and opportunities in each image. It is a never ending journey.

BACKGROUND

I have been a professional photographer for nearly 10 years now. I have worked with some great coaches and mentors who taught me how to see images and of course have helped to extend my technical skills both in the field and during post processing and printing.

I am a co-founder, with Paul Gallagher, of aspect2i, the Landscape Photography Workshop Company, which offers landscape and travel photography workshops and tours, many of which I lead. aspect2i also runs the Epson Print Academy and I am a lead presenter and trainer specialising in all aspects of the Digital Darkroom (photography post processing and printing).

Exhibitions of my work have been held in Belgium, France and the UK. I have also written a number of articles for different websites and magazines.
