About me

I am driven by a desire to create and document the world around me.  Photography is my way of connecting and sharing what I see.  I love minimalism and much of my photography is shaped by this, but I have become more involved in storytelling through images and text. 

 

Much of my work is based around journeys either through space or time, and on a personal level I love the meditative nature of the act of walking.  Passing slowly through a landscape allows us time to observe and reflect.

  

I am inspired by people who do things differently, and see the world in their own way.  Particular influences include the photographers Keith Carter and Susan Burnstine, sculptor Antony Gormley, and filmmaker Deeyah Khan.  Music is important to me and David Bowie is a hero for his all round creative genius and ability to reinvent himself.

 

Being in control of the complete creative process is important to me, I care about creating high quality work that has long term value.
