My approach to photography is greatly informed by my background in painting and I use various techniques to blur detail and abstract shapes in the landscape. My work straddles different genres and disciplines as I push away at boundaries in the search for my voice.

I build up layers in my camera and so my workflow is an instinctive, stream of consciousness ramble through shape and colour, light and shade, rhythm and flow and unbridled imagination where each decision I make is predicated on the result of the last one. It is a totally immersive process where the possibilities are seemingly limitless. 

I am primarily driven by an exploration of colour and form. Beyond that, I am intrigued by all manner of contrasts and contradictions and how they play out in the world around us. I am intrigued by the way  the most fragile elements seem to have their very existence challenged and their vulnerability magnified when set against the strength and solidity of their surroundings.

I have been fortunate to have been tutored by some highly talented and inspirational professionals, most notably Jay Maisel and the time spent with him and his impressive array of guest speakers in New York continues to influence the way I approach my work.

I have been influenced by many great talents; some of my inspirations include aforementioned Jay Maisel .  Also  Raphael Shevelev,  Chris Friel , Rob Hudson , Paul Kenny ,  Doug Chinnery,  Fay GodwinErnst Haas, Aaron Siskind, Andre Kertesz, Vivian Maier, Sarah Moon, Arnold Newman, Alexey TitarenkoCharlie Waite to name just a few. 

Painters whose work I particularly admire include Bonnard, Cezanne, Chagall, Diebenkorn, Kandinsky, Klee, Matisse, Rothko, Picasso,  Van GoghFrankenthaler and many others too numerous. to mention.
