Much of my more conceptual work is created for exhibition and/or installation or for a specific project I may be pursuing. I tend to work in series, so will develop a project through research and create a body of images over a period of time as I explore specific areas of interest.
This is what I enjoy about fine art photography - I can pursue my own interests rather than shooting to a brief or follow an assignment. Projects rarely end up where I thought they would, as they inevitably veer off on tangents as I discover something new or interesting about the subject.
My research can also send a curved ball as information comes to light that is fascinating and intriguing and which I just have to follow further. The end results then are often unpredictable but always satisfying and I hope, more authentic. I pursue a different range of projects, some at the same time.
Being outdoors, in the woods and fields and even in my garden is wonderful but it is not without constraints in terms of available light and the great British weather. Since setting up a studio, not only can I control the light but spend cold, dark or wet days being more productive whilst really getting up close and personal with my subjects. This has enable me to pursue a wider range of interests and explore extreme macro photography.
Many of the images are available to buy either as a Special Edition or Limited Edition prints, depending on the work or can be licensed for use on a personal website or blog.
