I’ve been taking images for more than 35 years for pleasure and have art directed countless professional photographers.
My passion lies in landscape photography and seascapes in particular. Living in New Zealand, I am lucky enough to be surrounded by a diverse array of landscapes. Most of my images are taken around the coast with special projects around Kaikoura and now Mount Maunganui.
I specialize in slow shutter speed, low light water-in-motion images – I love creating images that make you want to be there. I’m fascinated by the patterns made by streaming water over sand and rocks. These are images that simply cannot be seen unless you are studying the water motion.
My favorites are vertical seascapes - the deliberate exploitation of a wide-angle lens in a portrait format creating an image virtually from your feet to the horizon.
I never take an image from its most obvious viewpoint – I’m always looking for a different angle: climbing over rocks or wading into the sea to get closer to the action. Consequently getting wet has become the norm - if you’re not wet, you’re not close enough!
I want the viewers to feel as though they’re going to get their feet wet simply by looking at my photographs.
I use my own version of High Dynamic Range which I call “Painting with Light” to be able to record all the color values that you see. This involves considerable work in the digital environment.
