Architecture is often seen as works of art however too often I find the spaces we now live and work in quite oppressive.
A mystical and magical experience which can often be quite dangerous. Always respect the sea.
Variety is not only the spice of life, it's also one of the great things about the art form of photography. The number of possible subjects for a photo is almost limitless. Greater still, there are often formats, within forms and within disciplines.
Full spherical 360° panoramas are an amazing way to explore the world. I was introduced to this form of photography by Tony Redhead, an industry veteran who has worked in the field of computers and digital imaging for the past 30 years. Tony has become my mentor and most importantly a very dear friend.
There are many challenges to developing full spherical 360° panoramas however I think the greatest challenge is image composition. Framing a shot that is 360 x 180 degree where literally everything you see will be in the final photograph means you have to choose your timing and position very carefully.
Born in the UK, I am now based in Sydney, Australia and have always loved people and travel. My love of photography developed at an early age when I realised I wanted to take better pictures of the places I visited, rather than just snapshot records. Now, in the various different places I visit, I always hope to really capture the feel and spirit of the places and the people who inhabit them.
I’ve come to realise that photography is a personal journey, and I’m still only at the beginning. There’s always going to be so much more to learn and it’s a journey that I hope will take me to many parts of the world and one that I’ll be travelling for the rest of my life.
