"I hope you share my feelings of 'just being there' with a sense of delight in the beauty around us that you may have "looked at" but not taken the time to truly "see".
I am a Perth-based photographer who has been inspired not only by the great photographers like Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, and Edward Steichen, but also by JMW Turner and the Impressionists.
Photography is a visual language which communicates something to us, consciously or unconsciously. At its basic level a photo conveys a sense of time, character, place or event. At a deeper level a photo may remind us of memorable places, times and experiences; they may give pleasure; or stimulate emotions; or simply provide a medium to reconnect with the world around us by taking the time to "see" a moment in time.
I am interested in natural, abstract and urban landscapes, and the people within them. This is subject matter that provides me with my principal source of inspiration.
I aspire to be creative in my photography through the thoughtful use of viewpoint, composition, and camera settings to suit the subject matter. I use both Lightroom and Photoshop in post-processing to enhance the tonal and colour contrasts to convey to enhance the essential elements in the image.
