From There To Here
Hello and welcome to my Web Page. I guess at this point I'm supposed to say something profound and moving about photography, that's not really me. I don't look at my photos as art or a statement about the world or the human condition, they are just photos! Yes, I try to capture emotions, or intensity of action or perhaps a fleeting moment. I think that my shots are really just small time capsules of passing light and shadow, captured, shared and hopefully enjoyed by others.
Everyone seems to take pictures now, a world sinking under the deluge of quick images of selfies and food etc, instantly posted onto social networks. For me, it's a pleasure to be a little more deliberate in my choices of things to shoot, as well as spending time crafting the photo for its best presentation before sharing it.
I do love photography, and have loved it since I was given an Istamatic 126 back in 1963. Getting back those first square black and white prints from our local Boots Chemist a week or so later sold me! Holding them in my hands, I realised that I had created something that did not exist until I saw it in my viewfinder and clicked the shutter. It was pretty powerful stuff for a nine year old schoolboy and that same feeling survives today.
Many years later, the cameras have changed (many times) but the joy of photography has not. I've shot all sorts of things in the past. Now I find myself more of an events photographer. It can be quite challenging as one has to be sure of not missing that "never to be repeated" moment, like the Marathon winner crossing the finish line, and then getting the edited shots up on social media ASAP.
Most of my events happen outside but I can also shoot indoor events as well. Please feel free to drop me a line using the contact form below if you want to order photos or talk further.
