Photography for me has always been a creative outlet – almost a release from the day-to-day. In recent times it has become much more important to me than just as a release from my “normal” life. I see photography as a way of expressing myself creatively and as an individual.

I endeavour to capture what “I see” rather than what “is there”. By that, I mean that I aim to capture only what is important to me in an image, eliminating all else. This can mean simply choosing a very long lens for wildlife photography and using shallow depth-of-field to remove all distractions, or it can mean serious use of Photoshop to remove all unnecessary distractions. Or, it could mean using a studio environment to photograph a still-life or portrait, with nothing else other than the subject in the image. I think that there’s a place for all approaches.
