Photography has long been a suppressed passion that has been unleashed by travel and the digital era. I capture what I see and whilst digital software manipulation is a reality, it is something I try and keep to a minimum.
Much research goes into locations, with many being re-visited at different times of the year to capture 'that' scene. Whilst I enjoy all aspects of photography, including studio work in my gallery, I am particularly drawn to old things, buildings, machinery and places of unique and different beauty.
When I am photographing an old building or machinery I feel the excitement and anticipation that the constructors/owners must have felt all those years ago. I marvel at their tenacity and optimism in what must have been a hostile and difficult environment, but one that they viewed with hopes and dreams.
