This is a gallery of my personal projects, all of which are presented either as a completed set or as an ongoing body of work.
Each project can take anywhere between a few minutes and many months, or even longer, to complete and the one cohesive quality behind them is that they were created to be a ‘body of work’ rather than a collection of images which just happened to fit together and were probably taken over a period of time.
I usually work on two or three projects at a time and swing between them depending on the weather, my state of mind and of course the season.
Occasionally a project may be parked for a year if I run out of time. Moss Erotica is an example of this. I find I can only get the shots I want during a very narrow calendar window so must wait for the wheel of the year to turn to revisit and grow my project.
To see my images which aren’t part of a project please visit the ‘recent’ tab in the menu bar where you’ll find a growing repository of experimental, often random collections of shots, some of which I now view as failures, or more accurately stepping stones to new ways of seeing.
The full collection of images taken during my outland project. A day per week was devoted to taking images of the England's north west coast from the Welsh border to the Scottish border. I did the work regardless of the weather or light conditions, continuing in a linear fashion northwards along the coast.
Early spring days are best spent in this particular Silverdale woodland. It's become something of a ritual of mine that is perhaps 8 years old now.
Maybe the project has now seen it's run and I'll be released to pursue something other next spring. We'll see...
This project has been bumbling along for the past couple of winters and finally it's finding its way. Exploring the beauty and uniqueness of these simple plants, the project hopes to portray the interconnected life of these tiny beings.
Who knows, there may even be lessons for us in here somewhere...
Playing on the notion of the old saying 'as the crow flies' this short series of monochromes joins a solitary carrion crow as it plummets and plays in the turbulent atmosphere of an impending summer storm.
As The Crow Flies attempts to convey the exhilaration in abandoned journeying.
