I have taken photographs of people, places and objects that inspire me for many years. My camera is my sketch book. It enables me to capture a scene or moment I want to record.
A few years ago I studied for a Diploma in Photography to improve my technical ability, but really it's the act of looking that inspires. The excitement of capturing a 'decisive moment', when the light is perfect or something unexpected happens. Or an atmospheric landscape that stops you in your tracks.
And while I originally used Photoshop as a digital darkroom, its ever expanding range of features has opened endless possibilities for artistic expression.
