"......everywhere I look and most of the time I look, I see photographs." (Bert Hardy)
I'm a self-taught 'serious amateur' photographer with 25+ years experience using film and digital equipment. I also have a PhD in visual cognition/neuroscience but no longer work in the field.
For many years my approach was eclectic and I'd point my lens at anything that I thought would make a good photograph. Eventually, though, I found myself gravitating toward street and candid work and monochrome images. Unfortunately I tend to see great photographic images far more often when I'm without a camera than with a camera.
Many of the photographers who've inspired me are no longer living and female. I am neither. I particularly like Bert Hardy, Jane Bown, Gordon Parks, Dorothea Lange, Glenn Capers, Ara Guler, Jim Mortram, Billie Charity, Don McCullin, Walker Evans and Vivian Maier.
I don't do social media. Never have. It wasn't me that wrote that. I've lived in a small village in Gwynedd, Wales for the past 23 years. Before that I lived in the north-west Scottish Highlands for a couple of years and before that in Adelaide, Australia.
Please: do not share my images on other websites and any social media.
Constructive critiques of my work are always welcome.
