Having been taking pictures for some while now I have realised that really I’m an “on impulse” photographer. I don’t spend lots of time setting up to take a certain view, or a studio shot, I will just see something I like and take it. Therefore my camera is conveying what grabs me at the time, such as a group of people, the way I will see a building, or how the light at a certain time shows through the trees or falls onto a car, a person etc. I suppose that my camera has become my 3rd eye. I just endeavour to capture a picture in a different manner to the “norm”. When I then take that image and from it create what I hope to be a piece of photographic art, this can take many forms. Either my shot will be such that I can use it straight from the camera, or if I have a different view in my mind once developed I may give it my "treatment".
I have had my work published in several magazines, by BBC East and have been involved in joint and single exhibitions of my work.
