Biografia
My belief is that everyone can take beautiful images. I also believe that everyone’s view of the world is unique and therefore the images that we produce are also unique. To do this we have to firstly understand the difference between the way that our eyes see the world and the way a camera does. Disappointment with our photographs often comes down to, not understanding what superb pieces of evolutionary engineering our eyes are, and by comparison how limited a camera is, however expensive. Primarily our eyes function is one of survival. They allow us to navigate our world safely, to catch prey (or the bus) to drive, to not walk of the edge of cliffs, and so on. When we consider making a photographic image however, we are asking our eyes to function in a different way; to perceive beauty and make a record of that beauty, using a camera. To perceive and acknowledge beauty in the world around us is also, I believe, a need within us all. But with the hectic lives that we all lead, a need that is all to often forgotten. So for me landscape photography is very much about slowing down and allowing time to really see and appreciate the scenery before us. The more we can do this, the more likely we are to record a great image. Biography: I have been passionate about photography for as long as I can remember. My father was a landscape painter and seeing him working quietly away creating something of beauty was a vivid memory of my childhood and something that has profoundly influenced my photography. When it came to choosing careers, however, thinking photography a perilous profession, I went for the safe option and became an actor! In the late 90’s, I through care to the wind and followed my first love, and began to make the transition from amateur, to professional photographic work. Although my passion has always been landscape photography, put me in a field with a camera and I’m happy, I enjoy anything to do with photography. While getting out and shooting landscapes whenever possible, I became busier shooting portraits and weddings. In 2003, my wife Lila and I bought an 18th century farmhouse with twenty acres of land in the heart of the Dordogne, southern France. As the trips to France became more frequent, I was able to devote more time to landscape photography. I found the French landscape truly inspiring, with its seemingly endless supply of great locations. Unsurprisingly, it was not long before we sold up in the UK and moved to France,
