Rather than the standard biography, the next few lines are more of an explanation as to why I decided to create this site.
In recent years I have been pursuing a personal photographic passion. For some reason over the years I have never allowed myself the time to examine what to me is an individual fervour, being street/urban photography. As a photographer nowadays I am finding my enjoyment of carrying bags of heavy equipment waning somewhat, after a lifetime of struggling with pounds of heavy equipment and camera supports out to distant landscape locations. I have always found wandering with just a couple of rangefinders, fast primes and one very small bag very liberating and so refreshing. I am even finding my whole style and outlook towards general imagery changing.
I really believe nowadays I am taking a new photographic route to some extent, not only commercially with many new commitments, but also individually. I know deep inside that I will always spend time shooting landscape and I.R, but my passion for street/documentary photography is becoming a very large part of my life and thus consuming much of my time. I am now covering miles out on the streets right across the World, so it felt right to open this new website to showcase a little of my work.
I honestly think we all change as we grow older, but then I believe all artists should diversify and constantly experiment with new ideas.
Personally I think of it as just exploring yet another avenue, maybe not the general road ahead who knows, but for now after 40 years of photography I am once again having great fun, visiting new places and have found a new hunger for what I am doing and that only has to be good.
