My work is a journey through using my first SLR camera - Canon 400D. Prior to owning this I would take photographs of mainly architechture and landscapes. I am now drawn towards portraits, particulary trying to get to either know the subject - or not at all. No inbetween. I am fascinated making what may look like an ordinary everyday image into something quite extraordinary.
I am using lyrical association with my books - as almost always I hear lyrics to particular songs to some of the images I take - hence the lyrics are sometimes displayed next to images.
I have now purchased a Canon 5D MkII - and have a personal project -365 Days that is ongoing.
I am also keen at creating photo books when I travel. My latest books will be of my journey to Kathmandu and Nepal to climb Everest Base Camp.
|Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...|
I will be publishing a book entitled: 365 DAYS. I have started a new project - self portraits (365 days).. I take a portrait of myself each day. It's a visual diary.
I am also looking to publish all my photographs of bands taken over the past year.
