I’ve been interested in photography for many years and another interest of mine is impressionist art; artists such as J M W Turner, Claude Monet and others have been a great influence in my photography journey.
For this exhibition I’ve brought together a collection of my favourite styles I have adopted.

I hope you enjoy…

Composites

I enjoy making composite images either in camera or in software.
I like the fact that you can take individual images and create something new.
I usually have in mind what the final image will look like and relish the challenge to create it.

Flowers

I take great inspiration from the flowers I grow throughout the year in my garden. Sometimes picking the flowers, other times taking them in situ. 
Rather than give an accurate representation of the flower I would much rather use a shallow depth of field to give an impressionistic feel.

Intentional Camera Movement

Another of my passions, the freedom ICM gives me as a photographer feeds my creative vision of a scene.

Multiple Exposures

I enjoy taking multiple exposures in camera, and creating  something new.
This can be hit and miss at times as you never really know what you are going to get, but really satisfying when you get it right.

Infra-red Photography

Seeing the unseen; Infra-red is something I have been interested in for many years.
It also lets me take photographs of my favourite subject; trees.

Pinhole Photography

This slows me down and makes me think about what I am taking and as such can be very relaxing.
The ultra wide angle lens on my pinhole camera also distorts the scene to a degree which gives it a creative edge.
