I began photography in 2013, originally to help to relax after being diagnosed with M.E. I soon became obsessed with making images as beautiful and emotional as possible, and so became drawn to swans as my main subject matter. I also enjoy photographing my cats, as well as rescue cats and other animals for charities.
Technical values are important to me as a way to make make the most beautiful and emotional photographs, so in the field I make best use of the best equipment I can.. I like to keep my photographs true to the subject matter, so I generally do not edit in an extreme or false way. I do love my images to be as technically accomplished as possibles though so I take a great deal of care over all the small edits I do, after years of experimenting with more complex techniques.
I was an electronic music producer before I took up photography, and have recently began to compose music to complement to swan photographs. See the first works in the video section…
