Like many a hobbyist, I have been making images all my life in an incidental way, an SLR has always accompanied me on my various journeys, and people have always fascinated me as subjects. Since 2000 I have paid more attention to 'intentional' images, by which I mean thinking about images, trying to achieve something with care and attention rather than by happy chance or intuition (neither of which is a terrible thing, just not so repeatable!).
Always interested in beauty, and feminine beauty in particular, in 2010 I began (rather tentatively) shooting with models, for whom I have the greatest respect and admiration. This leads to collaboration, ideas, things that work well and things that work less well, in short, learning and experimenting. I'm not there yet, but I aspire to create images of beauty, of interest, images that tell a story or simply hold the eye or bring a smile.
It is a continuing journey and adventure, and I thank you so much for your interest in my images. There is so much on DA that is beautiful, thought provoking and artistic so that capturing your attention for a moment is a great honour.
