My photography is featured on the cross art form Sightjumping website this February. My portfolio presents an eclectic mix that has resulted from an excitement for a blurring of the boundaries between analogue and digital processes. My passion for the monochrome and duotone image is always evident; letters and words; highlight and shadow; the figure in the landscape; and a fascination for the magical boundaries between visible and invisible light; these are all recurrent themes, and sources of inspiration. Future projects will explore and indulge my fascination with analogue instant / Polaroid films.

I have always enjoyed image making, whether the process is drawing, painting, or photography. My first photographs date back to when I was nine years old, and was the proud owner of Kodak 127 roll film instamatic. Shooting mostly holiday landscapes and friends portraits, I then progressed to using a wonderful Russian SLR, further fuelling my passion for black and white.
My photography explores past events, experiences the present, and contemplates the future. The camera records, as a sketchbook, the essence of ideas, and the nuances of existence. Pathways are revealed in landscapes and faces that lead the explorer towards discoveries. I am fascinated by the area of shared experience and empathy between the photographer and his model. The creation of the image is a collaborative event, which extends beyond the moment to include the viewer within this collective process.
