MeMORABLE MOMENTS, mostly IN MONOCHROME
Welcome. I’m glad you’re here.
You know, life as a photographer puts you in the wonderful position of being a party to and visual storyteller of so many wonderful and poignant moments in people’s lives. Photography allows us to create timeless images that will captivate, fascinate and enthrall future generations with the live’s of everyday folk - from great, great grandparents to newly born sons and daughters. It’s always the emotion in the image that gets you; and of course, the implicit story - the connection with the person, the situation, or the event.
It makes me indescribably happy to be a Photographer.
I’m fascinated by photographing people and I‘ve always been beguiled by the visual impact and sense of emotional 'story-telling' that monochrome bestows on images, so, in between commissioned work, I spend many happy hours attempting to capture some of life’s more intriguing ‘StreetLife’ moments, mostly in monochrome. I also share here my experiences of working on assignments and video shoots, and occasionally write about specific equipment - if it worked.
These images have been shot during planned projects designed around a specific theme. There's really no substitute for the challenge of real photographic projects with proper deadlines. Projects add focus and timescales as well as ambitious photographic objectives.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I did creating them…….
