About the Site
“A great photograph is a full expression of what one feels about what is being photographed in the deepest sense and is thereby a true expression of what one feels about life in its entirety. ” (Ansel Adams)
I live in Swansea, South Wales (UK) and have an Associateship of the Royal Photographic Society for a portfolio on light around the Gower Peninsula.
The website showcases Swansea, Gower and the rest of Wales in Galleries 1-4, each with their own drop-down menus. Galleries 5-7 are elsewhere.
In this age when everything is photographed to death I aim to capture a fleeting moment in the landscape that somehow defines its essence. I also try to avoid clichéd images (not always possible!) by capturing a viewpoint transformed into something ethereal and transient, always by nature’s light and colour alone. Not every image can achieve such lofty ambitions but that is usually my chase.
I don’t personally like manipulated or heavily enhanced images. My only editing is to reproduce nature’s colours and forms as close as possible to how they appeared in front of the lens. This, to me, captures the truth of the moment and its genuine soul and spirit.
I print my own work and frequently exhibit in and around Swansea. Brief information on future exhibitions can be found under the Exhibitions menu.
I do not use the website for sales but if you’re interested in an image please pop me an email and I’ll get back to you.
