I’m a graphic designer by profession but with a passion for photography. My camera is always over my shoulder.
I like to think that I don’t simply ‘take pictures’ – I try to capture moments and images and will therefore literally shoot anything, as many things catch my eye… and hopefully at some level, some others also get pleasure from my pictures too.
I dislike photo manipulation where it’s not needed and like, where and when possible, to capture things naturally, as in… ‘as I saw them’. If the shot is ‘meant to be’ it doesn’t require filters or otherwise. The only thing I do on occassion is convert colour shots to black and white and usually only if I consider it’s colour content to be distractive. I convert to black and white simply to allow certain images speak for themselves.
I don’t always get the chance to visit as often as I’d like, but when I do I really enjoy browsing through others galleries and mostly feel humbled when I look at other members pictures.
I would respectfully ask that you respect the © on all my images, designs and/or written work and ask that I be contacted if they are required to be used in any private or commercial manner. I mean – it’s nice to be nice…!
Oh and by the way, I actively encourage positive and negative comments on my work. If there’s something you think I could have done differnetly to make the shot better (other than photo manipulation in PS) then please feel free to share your thoughts.
PS: I also have galleries of shots at http://www.flickr.com/photos/lensthat
Digital… love it. I mean, who want’s to spend time in a dark room..? :-)
