I've always loved creating art, but I can't draw for toffee so photography was the obvious choice when I was wondering how to make a picture that didn't look like it had been done by a five year old. I mean, all you have to do is point and shoot, don't you?!
I realised a long time ago that the point and shoot style that I thought I was amazing at didn't quite fit with the type of photograph I like. (You can't fix an out of focus shot in Photoshop, believe me I tried, for about three weeks.) I figured I'd better start to actually learn how to turn the camera on, so I read, I practised, I asked and I listened and now not only can I turn the camera on, I can even replace the battery when it's run out!
For me the photograph is only a part of the image making process. I have a somewhat quirky and alternative style to my images. I like to show a different side to the things I photograph, creating an image that will make the viewer think and consider a different perspective.
