I have always been more interested in the visual art side of photography, rather than the equipment and materials that are used, and this is still my philosophy today. I feel it is worth remembering a good image will always shine through however it was created, or by whatever means, and the more you look for images the easier they are to find.
Much of my photography is inspired by the beauty of our dramatic landscape, especially Devon and Cornwall where I have been fortunate to live for most of my life. Whether I am making images in the landscape, or at home doing still life work, my aim is always to create images that are visually exciting and often overlooked.
In retirement I am able to devote more time to alternative photography. I am finding it stimulating learning new (old) ways of making images, as well as taking on the challenge of finding suitable subjects for the processes involved.
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
