Abstract made from a digital capture of beach pebbles, trapped inside a metal grid, outside a fisherman’s hut, Deal beach, Kent, UK. The original image, shown below, was taken with a Canon 1Ds Mk 1, fitted with a Canon EF 70- 200mm 1:2.8 L IS USM Lens. Digital manipulation was done using Adobe Photoshop Elements 7.

I was a scientist for many years, working in the field of medical research, both in academia and in industry. In late 2004, I left science to pursue my creative interests in photography and the visual arts.

I am now a professional photographer living in South East London. You can view my professional photography website at:- www.whitewindmillphotography.co.uk
