I enjoy living in rural England and love showing it to people through my photographs. These I take in various ways, mostly on my iPhone. I sometimes use filters to alter the colour balance and i like experimenting with hand held time exposures. They give the pictures an unreal feel, even though they are still just straight photographs.
As you can see from my Profile, I am no longer in the first flush of youth, but have been interested in photography most of my life. I was given a Kodak box camera by my parents when I first went abroad as a schoolboy, and got hooked. Gradually, over the years, I got better and better cameras and eventually took pictures for a picture library, many of which were published. I even produced a photo book of the Cotswolds, where I live, and which still, to my amazement, turns up in Amazon's second hand section. It's called "A Photographic Year in the Cotswolds" if you're interested.
Now older, I'm simplifying my life and have downsized my photography in a way. I am as keen as ever and take pictures every day, but now it is mostly on my iPhone or one of my pocket cameras. Gone is the sophisticated, but heavy, Nikon outfit I so loved. I softened, and so have my pictures. And now I am digital. No more long absorbing exciting hours in the darkroom. Now i use digital exclusively.
I think what my photography has brought me is an ability, shared by many photographers and artists, to really see the world around me. My eyes have been opened to the rich reality of life, if that is not too grand a way of putting it. I hope you share that with me, and I hope you like my pictures. Please do leave comments when you visit this site, in praise or criticism. All are welcome.
