Abstract Photography - Surprising images from the natural world

P r o f i l e

The natural world is full of surprises and discovering them is only limited by our powers of observation. There is so much more to see
 than meets the eye and this is what I try to discover and capture in my work.

Digital photography can enhance our powers of perception. I let nature provide the patterns and textures and the colours. I use technology
to enhance what is already there. Sometimes I add to the picture by using natural objects found nearby. The results can be mysterious,
vibrant, challenging and, sometimes, weird!

I’m privileged to live in one of the most beautiful areas of England, the South Hams of Devon. Here are hidden valleys, tumbling
streams, ancient trees, and a stunning coast with rocky shores. This is all the inspiration I need. I’m also greatly indebted to my
talented wife, Sara, without whom none of this would have happened.

I have no formal qualification in photography so I have no guidelines to follow and no boundaries other than those I set
myself. I rarely superimpose images or use layers or any other tricks made available by technology. But where I think it will make
a composition more interesting I will search within the picture for hidden colours, those that are already there but we which we
cannot see.

I hope you enjoy the work on this site. If you would like to see them for real click on the Events link below or come and visit me in my
