Welcome to my website, which shows some of my recent photography. From my first 127 film Box Brownie, through 35mm and medium format film to modern digital cameras I have always been fascinated with photography. My influences range from Hipgnosis, the designers of surreal record sleeves (remember them?), where I worked briefly in the late 70s, to more traditional B+W landscape photographers, such as Fay Godwin, Paul Hill, John Blakemore and Thomas Joshua Cooper. Having retired from work recently to spend more time on photography, I am starting an MA Photography in September 2017 at UWE in Bristol.
My work is landscape based and increasingly I find myself drawn to more abstract work. A photograph is an abstract representation of some external ‘reality’, and in freezing a moment in time it transforms it into something quite else - from chaos and abundance to a stilled and enigmatic image. Sometimes people feature in these images but more often it's their impact on the land which is revealed. I include some documentary style photographs here, stimulated in response to some of things I see on my travels.
I am a member of the Contemporary Group of the RPS (Royal Photographic Society), and participate in one of their postal portfolios. I have exhibited as part of Marlborough Open Studios in 2015 and 2017 and All Along the Watershed was on show at the White Horse Gallery in Marlborough in August 2017.
