I’m usually taking pictures because I’ve gone somewhere, rather than going somewhere to take pictures. Thus most are not taken with the best setup, but attempting to get the best in the situation available, usually in a very short timescale.
Light, Camera, Action. These are the three mantra that I based my photography on. Firstly, I like to observe atmospheric light; if the lighting is not sufficient then I employ camera dial up combination of ISO, Shutter Speed, Aperture and inbuilt flash light (if needed) to illuminate the subject. After doing a few test and adjust, then I focus on my subject.
I like taking all kind of photographs from Streets to Events. Just the joy of being able to capture photographic evidence in the creative way tends to by my ultimate goal.
My interest in photography began over 30 years ago when candid portraiture and travel photography were my main focus. I now concentrate mainly on landscapes, with a bit of the 'arty farty' occasionally added to the mix! The images in this Gallery reflect my various styles and interests and span a number of years.
I have enjoyed photography for around thirty years, trying many genres through this time but monochrome being my passion.
The images I have chosen here hold fond memories of the places they were taken and also the story the picture tells
As a scuba diver for >35 years, I have long had an interest in underwater photography, joining underwater photography clubs years before joining a general one. I also have a keen interest in wildlife photography around the word, followed by travel photography and I would like to improve my limited abilities in capturing landscapes.
Photography for me is an absorbing art form, once smitten you capture the now forever.
My images are processed using computer programmes thus exercising my mind and creativity skills for the enjoyment of myself in the process and hopefully the enjoyment of others who gaze upon my images.
My interest in photography started while experimenting with a lightshow and psychedelic effects in the late 1960s. I am still experimenting, as with photography there is always something to learn, something new, a surprise around the corner.
I have enjoyed being a member of SPS since 1987 and 30 years later I can still finding something new.
Colour and Infra Red photography has led me onto an uncertain path and that is why photography is so exciting: a challenge around every corner.
Photography has become a passion and intrical part of my life. When photographing, suddenly you notice light, shapes, colours, textures, people, buildings, trees, flowers…Everything around you looks different when you start to see the world through a lens. The way you see it is unique so photography allows you to share this perspective with others.
It is a passion that you can share, with new directions and new challenges to explore. I find photography a wonderful story-telling medium which can reflect every emotion, from happiness to sadness, fear and excitement. Photography is capable of bending reality through the use of time lapse, HDR shots and light painting, just much as it records a brief moment in time.
I was given my first camera when I was 8 years old and even at that age I looked at things differently and poked into corners or through openings to see what was there. My photographs are what I see, there, in that moment.
As a young boy my dad kindled my interest in photography by teaching me how to develop contact prints in the cellar. My fascination with photography continued but mostly my photography has recorded my travels, and events with friends and family, however last year I joined SPS to encourage me to improve the quality and variety of my work - a good move!
