My life centres around photography and travel. This blog is about photo journeys and is a visual diary of the day to day stuff of when I am at home in Cornwall or travelling, usually three months at a time and more than likely to India to shoot personal projects.
For most of my life I have always been a photographer and have progressed through many basic and very old cameras, starting with a second-hand Box Brownie presented by my father on my 10th birthday. My photographic epiphany arrived after seeing a Sebastião Salgado exhibition at the old RPS Ocatgon in Bath way back in the 80′s and have ever since pursued my favourite subject, reportage with hopefully an all seeing eye. Since seeing that exhibition I have been in awe of the Magnum Agency and its photographers and am totally fascinated and inspired by their photographic essays….
Having travelled extensively throughout America, Canada, Asia and Oceania photographing culture, people and landscapes. I have always been excited by all things visual, be it the arts or just life and people encountered from day to day.
Originally from London, I have spent much of my life in Cornwall, where I now live.
After many years of 35mm I now work with a DSLR, mainly with primes and have recently acquired a Lensbaby Composer which keeps me from being too nerdy about crispy images …. gear is good but VISION is paramount.
Documentary and travel photography is my main interest, but I also love to shoot food and portraits and since digital arrived I embrace any new and creative techniques and love to dwell n’ delve in all that is possible in Lightroom and Adobe Creative Cloud.
