I grew up on a small farm in the Welsh countryside.
My first clear memory is of the afternoon sun lighting a wall in front of the kitchen window. I was fascinated by the way the colour of the bricks changed as the sun went down.
Living in a natural environment for so long has influenced my photography.
I use reflections as they allow me to use contrast, or include ‘out of shot’ elements.
I use clouds, mist and fog for their ability to convey mood.
I like lines, angles and shapes. The contrasts help to illustrate the effect of man in nature, and lines often lead to imagined/unseen places.
I like old/abandoned buildings and machines because they highlight the passing of time and allow the imagination to take over.
I like graffiti, it usually brings colour to dull urban environments and, if it’s good, it makes a statement and provokes thought.
Finally I like to use perspective to show a known subject in a new way or create abstracts. And also to show the unusual, often things which others pass without noticing.
My aim is to make the viewer think and feel.
