Travel & Landscape
Travel is probably the main reason I took up photography in the first place. It’s a luxury I wouldn’t want to do without.
I came to photography through travel & not travel through discovering photography. In saying that I mean that I have seen quite a bit more in the past 45 years than I have been able to capture with digital equipment in the past 10 years. The combination suits me as I enjoy setting up my tripod somewhere at times where most people are either still in bed or on their way home before it gets dark. During the day you need more luck with lighting situations.
Town & City
Most of us earn our daily bread by working & living in a town or city thus such settlements have built up over centuries of time developing into the beehives & melting pots of mankind.
Inevitably throughout my travels I get to see the odd metropole here & there be it passing through to some natural landmark or purposely travelling to towns & cities that interest me due to their history, impressive architecture or a social event. Particularly in the evening I like to venture out into the bright lights shooting material that looks more appealing than when shot during the day.
Wildlife & Nature
We only have the one planet & are thus responsible to keep it in tact for upcoming generations but we seem to be struggling, losing the fine balance between need & greed. I hope that my imagery isn’ t just a reference for the past but hope for the future.
The world has become a very complex, consumer oriented place leaving little time for the simple things in life. Escapism with help from virtual worlds build an impression that the real world is boring in comparison. Who needs to fly half way around the world to California for example when you can see everything with VR from the couch? That’s an argument if you were never there or have no intention of going but is not a good comparison.
Still-Life & Macro
Not only the big outdoors is where I feel at home but also in the smaller outdoors of the garden & also indoors where I like to try my hand at many things Still-life delving into the fascinating world of macro photography.
Working as a Digital Artist I strive for perfection wherever possible & this way of working is important to me from the photographic aspect also. Macro photography allows me to get lost in detail photographically & in the finalization with the post processing phase afterwards.
Panorama & Time-lapse
Panoramic photography enables me to grab that little bit extra. Time-lapse on the other hand is where I can let the camera do the work capturing life passing by.
When out & about I tend to shoot quite a bit of material & among the masses of single shots I try (time permitting) to shoot the odd panorama too. The size of the Panorama material varies immensely depending on my choice of lens & crop leading to varied resolutions ranging from anything between 10-60000 pixel formats.
A Potpourrie of imagery shot when on the lookout for something different, experiments & a few lucky accidents along the way.
As you can see from the categories above my varied interests take up a considerable amount of time but where the opportunity arises I shoot other subjects that grab my curiosity. Here you will find examples of other photographic genres that grab my interest occasionally.
