I am (among many other things) a photographer, writer and musician, based in Leeds. This site is the main site for my photography.
I shoot both digital film, using a wide collection of equipment, much of it second hand and ‘retro’. I am interested in many different subjects, though my photography mainly lies across two main areas, though I unashamedly shoot anything that takes my fancy.
The first of these is a passion for event photography, coming from my love of live music and festivals.
Events I have worked on recently have included Beaverfest, Hyde Park Unity Day, Mush, Luddites 200 and Kendal Calling Dance Tent. For this work I shoot using Canon EOS film and digital systems, often using techniques such as shutter-dragging with a flash and wide angle lenses for a creative effect.
I am looking to expand my portfolio in this area and seeking commissions which at the moment I will often do on an expenses basis – if you are interested in my services here please get in touch using the contact page.
A large part of my more personal work I would describe (for want of a better term) as Conceptual Landscapes. Rather than documenting what I see directly I am interested in exploring themes surrounding how we see and interpret the reality of our lived environment. I seek beauty and interest in the urban terrain, aiming to look outside the box and challenge how we view things.
For this work I often retro equipment, shooting film to vintage and toy cameras, using techniques such as cross processing and taking quite a snapshot approach, or in the digital realm using equipment such as Lensbabies and filters to create something abnormal and challenging perceptions.
I am also looking to extend this into works including the human form – I would hesitate to say pure location portraits, but this is a developing theme. I am looking for models for this work.
I am open for commissions, or licensing of my images. Get in touch if you would like to discuss creating something cool together.
