Inspirations taken from nature, predominantly the plant kingdom.
Abstract designs and vivid tapestries of colour. Some frozen, some nearing the end of their life.
All of the subjects are grown in my garden.
I have been a still life photographer for my entire career.
Always preferring to work with monochrome film. I spend hours in the darkroom printing and finally hand colouring the prints. There is something about working in the darkroom that is magical.
Recently I have been using digital, but I do not find it as satisfying and always return to film!
Some of the books I have published include; Portrait of a Valley, Portrait of a Shoot, Floralia, Travels with a Leica, Dogs and Other Animals.
