Welcome Beach, Sunset Moon

I was born in the UK but have lived my adult life in Canada. I am a self-taught contemporary photographer. Much of my photography is taken locally of the mountains, oceans and beaches in British Columbia near my home in Halfmoon Bay, but a few are from my childhood home in Cheshire, UK.

Photography has always been important to me. I am a dance teacher and choreographer as well as a photographer, and I have captured dancers with a camera for many years. I seem to have transferred the choreography of dance to that of choreographing nature. I like to make nature dance.

Reflections are an important part of the drama that I create; they magnify the beauty of the scene. A lot of my photographs are full of light and shadow. I love to work with these elements. I can change the mood of an image using bright light, dark shadows and reflections.

 

Welcome Beach, Night and Day

As I grow and my work develops, I am learning new techniques to manipulate my images and to produce the exact feeling that I wish to convey. I begin with reality and reveal the mystery. Sometimes the final image appears from the feeling that I had when I took the original photograph – one of peace while enjoying the gentle ocean waves or the anger and rage of a storm.

Colour is very important to me and the vibrant colours in nature make it easy for me to create eye popping images. I spend many hours at my computer before being satisfied with my creations.

 

Night Sky

All my work is from my original photographs. The subject matter is of the utmost importance.

I take thousands of photographs, using only a few. As I learn new techniques, I find that some of my older photographs that I  previously discarded become the correct one for a creation with my new techniques. I have many external hard dives full of original photographs and finished artwork.

I am excited when I find new ways to show the viewer the beauty of nature. I hope that it uplifts them. I want to support them on their journey through life. I feel that I am revealing the soul of nature.
