3265_-Recce_CA1_0022_ADI was a potter and sculptor for 9 years before taking up photography. Those muddy beginnings provided me with a pretty tough education in form and classical proportion, which I like to neglect in favour of a more personal approach.

For me, half of the challenge is to keep things simple enough so that the audience and ourselves can believe in what we see: there’s no shortage of clever deception in photography.  I try to cut that out wherever possible to let composition, colour and subject matter capture the imagination instead.
