I’m a self taught photographer with a desire to constantly explore new avenues of creativity. I am interested in almost all genres but I do have a preference for moody landscape images. Consequently, the use of HDR and long exposure techniques are often used in much of my work. Like many photographers, I also enjoy travel and consider both pursuits as being the perfect synergy. Together, they form a very satisfying and addictive obsession.
For me, the creative aspect of this addiction is almost all about emotion. Images need to be more than just a graphical representation of an object or place. A well crafted photograph needs to tell a story, stimulate the emotions, create intrigue or elicit some reaction. I think of photography as an enjoyable, self indulgent pastime and therapy. It helps me live life. Photography is a journey and I want it to be a long journey. Something I can enjoy for the rest of my days.
I primarily use Canon equipment. The camera bodies currently in service are an EOS 7D and EOS 5D MkIII. I also use an assortment of lenses, speedlights, tripods, filters etc. from various manufacturers covering most situations including several Canon “L” series professional units.
