About the Site
I live in Swansea, South Wales (UK). The photographs concentrate on my home area including the Gower peninsula, the Brecon Beacons and a selection from around Wales. The galleries are broken down into smaller areas within each region.
I’ve photographed Gower for many years looking at the inter-action of natural light on the land and sea. My favourite images are those that capture fleeting moments of light that may quickly come and go, many times suffering a long wait in foul weather for that moment to arrive… or not! Such moments so often create forms and colour combinations that transform the ordinary into the extraordinary, the mundane into the magical. I was awarded an Associateship of the Royal Photographic Society (UK) for a portfolio on Gower on this theme in black and white but now shoot solely in colour. I frequently exhibit my work locally, including the National Trust Centre in Rhossili.
My only editing is to reproduce nature’s colours and forms as close as possible to how they appeared in front of the lens. Others, I know, create high contrast colour enhancements to maximize impact but I passionately believe in presenting the original light as seen. This, to me, preserves the original integrity and spirit of the photograph as a true record. I also hope the images reflect my emotional response to the landscape before me, something that never fails to stir the soul. Everyone to their own, I suppose.
I do not use the website for sales but if you are interested in an image please pop me an email and I’ll get back to you.
Thank you for dropping by.
