I’ve always had a fascination with pictures – both still and moving.
Even from an early age I loved films that made bold impressions on the eye. My favourite films as a 6 year old were westerns, not for the cowboys, indians and guns but for the wonderful landscapes like Monument Valley, the Grand Canyon and The Rockies.
I even liked the old black and white films – but didn’t understand why. Colour TV had just come in and it had to be better than that old black and white stuff didn’t it ?
As you will see from the galleries, land and seascapes form the main body of my work but I consciously try and be as diverse as possible – with the exception of studio portraits – including one of my more recent interests, Street Photography.
Whatever the subject, I firmly believe that capturing an outstanding monochrome image is my greatest photographic pleasure since such an image is just as gripping as any colour image can be.
Thanks for dropping by and looking at my pictures – especially if you’ve been moved to take the time to comment on them. All comments are read and appreciated, especially if they’re constructive or heartfelt.
