Location, location, location

When we marvel at the skill of street photographers to extract from the chaotic mass of visual information that surrounds us, a spontaneous and magical moment of everyday life, it would seem that they are just blessed with good luck. The truth however is somewhat different. We head to locations that we know are going to provide us with rich photographic potential.

In praise of verticality

I’ve always approached photography as the art of capturing reality in a way that is not instinctively obvious to the naked eye. This is one of the fundamental reasons I’ve often been drawn to the vertical format. Framing a picture within the upright dimensions of a 35mm camera, is a compositional choice which creates, by its nature, an alternate perspective.

Oscillation – architectural art installation

As part of the annual summer public art installation and cultural festival known as the “Voyage à Nantes”, I had the pleasure of being commissioned to photograph the Oscillation project, situated in the up and coming thriving area known as the “ Quartier de la Création”, or if you wish, the Creative Quarter.

Loire Atlantique Photo Spring Workshop

Following on from the success of last autumn's workshop, a new set of street shooting enthusiasts from local photo clubs, joined me for a spring weekend in Nantes & Saint Nazaire. From the city centre flea-market to the seaside promenade: a variety of environments to capture the imagination & harness our skills.

Hommage to Hopper

Like many photographers before me, I have found myself, whether consciously or subconsciously, heavily influenced by and indebted to the work of the great American painter Edward Hopper (1882-1967).

Harry Gruyaert – a source of surrealist inspiration

When I started out in photography I felt an immediate affinity for the so-called artistic virtues of black and white. I appreciated colour photography, but apart from subscribing to National Geographic and admiring the beautiful images captured across the world, I did not believe that colour was anything other than the medium one used for commissioned work and it did not inspire me as a creative form in its own right.
