Christmas Medley..

A small montage of  favourite images made in the last 12 months as well as some images from new and ongoing projects which will be published in the new year..


Above are just some snappy observations on a day out to scratch the itchy trigger finger..

 Of course I could of done these on my phone. Would of been a whole lot quicker, and probably of looked better once I added a few filters...
People have it in their heads that things need to be instant and look a certain way these days. Once upon a time imperfections and flaws where what made an image special. I've even seen photographs of decaying interiors that have been air brushed, a huge contradiction which begs the question; What are you actually trying to say.

Sadly 'photography' has become too easy and its not surprising when seasoned photographers throw hissy fits when some teenager announces his new fashion campaign or book of photographs.

Photography means 'painting with light'. If you dont know this, or do this, then don't call yourself a photographer. You are something else, I just don't know what..


The Bone Room

I was kindly granted access to a wonderful place known as The Bone Room where I will be continuing  my search for natures oddities.
I was not really looking to do anything human in terms of my Calvariam series, but this skull was too interesting to pass up..


I don't claim to be original by any stretch of the imagination. In fact I spent years, like a lot of people, trying to make original photography only to find (as my quote goes) someone has; either done it, doing it, or thinking about it..

So as well as my ongoing skull series I have also been dabbling with beetles (skeleton on the outside) and other creepy crawlies. Its a facinating subject awash with bright colours and sharp claws..

Shoot what you like and like what you shoot..
