 About me

Alan Park

 "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". 

Photography was initially a form of therapy for me, but is now part of my identity.  It has given meaning to my life after retirement and potentially a second career as an artist.  


Born and brought up in Wales, I have always had a love of nature and a desire to create.  I was fortunate that the area where I spent my early years, while not the lush green of the Wye Valley, had the benefit of backing onto the Helena River in Perth.  After univerisity my job took me throughout Australia, Europe and the UK until my retirement.  


As my technical and artistic post-processing skills improved I found the medium gave me an outlet to my creative needs, using the camera as a paintbrush employing the 'in-camera-movement'.  This techniques  enables me to create semi-abstract images  where shape and colour are reminiscent of Impressionist painting. I also take inspiration not only from the 20th century photographers,  notably Alfred Stieglitz, Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, and Edward Steichen, but also from Haas and Alex Tikarenko.    


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 to enhance the tonal and colour contrasts to convey to enhance the essential elements in the image.
