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 gained an Associateship of the Royal Photographic Society for a portfolio on the effects of light around the Gower peninsula. I frequently hold exhibitions in the local area.
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.
I aim to capture transient effects of natural light that paint unique combinations of colour and mood, especially where land interacts with the sea. Much of my exhibition work is taken in so-called ‘bad’ weather, often waiting for just a fleeting moment that transforms the mundane into something magical. Mother Nature alone can reveal a personality in the landscape that lies dormant when conditions are more benign, somehow defining its raw essence.
My only editing is to reproduce nature’s colours and forms as close as possible to how they appeared in front of the lens. I passionately believe in preserving the true soul and spirit of the original image, hopefully reflecting my own emotional engagement at the time.
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.
