|My photography takes me around the globe photographing landscapes, people, streets and urban environments using a method called Intentional Camera Movement.
All my life I have been involved in the creative arts in some form or another. A fine art landscape and figurative painter. A graphic designer in numerous print houses and as a video editor and cameraman for 2 major news organisations. The one thing though that has always been consistent through all my life has been photography.
I don’t necessarily photograph subjects. I photograph the way things make me feel. Admittedly, it may a bit of a strange concept, but it works – and it’s the best way to describe my approach. My goal has always been to show emotions in my art rather than a simple visual depiction of a person, place or thing.
Much of what I shoot is done spontaneously without any preconceived thoughts or plans. I let what is around me dictate what is photographed.
Shooting photos is only the first step – a beginning. I take the raw images and create what I see in my mind’s eye. Discovering textures present in the shot and sometimes adding them. Enhancing the contrast of light and dark to create the mood and emotions I felt and feel. In the end, it’s all about listening to my heart and mind and creating a visual representation of what I feel the moment the shutter is released.
