How long have you been a photographer?
I've been interested in photography for as long as I can remember. Even in my early childhood I could be found carrying around a camera, snapping away. I remember one of my first ones being a pocket Kodak Ektra. But, more seriously in the last 15 years or so, I'd say. My dad started his early working life as a projectionist at the local cinema, as indeed his dad before him, so rolls of film have clearly always been at my family roots!
Have you had any work published?
Yes, I've been fortunate to have my work published nationally in photographic magazines, journals and newspapers including; Black & White Photography, N-Photo, The RPS Journal, Digital Photography Enthusiast and Cambridge Independent.
So, why monochrome?
I love the way that black & white simplifies an image and gives it a timeless, artistic feel. Removing the distraction of colour makes us focus on the subject more and compositions can be simplified. My ARPS panel 'Coastscapes' was entirely monochrome, and it was this point that inspired me to focus on black & white photography and develop my own fine art style.
What equipment do you use?
I currently use a Nikon D800 full frame body, with 20mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm Nikkor prime lenses. I favour primes for my land and seascape work because of their speed, sharpness and optical excellence, they are superb. For my equine work, my favourite lense is the 70-200mm (with 1.3x convertor), allowing me to capture all the action but not needing to get too close. In terms of filters for my long exposure work, I use a full set of Lee grads and NDs, as well as the Lee Big Stopper and Little Stopper. I also have a Fujifilm X-T100 mirrorless camera with 14-45mm lens, which is perfect for capturing great quality shots when I am unable to take my full gear.
