“I have always wanted to be able to paint or draw, and have always greatly admired those who could.I believe it’s ability to capture the beauty, however abstract, in ones minds eye that is enviable. Sadly, this is not a gift I possess and I am about as graceful with my hands as something not very graceful. But photography was always something I felt I understood and really enjoyed. It’s a thing of light, of optics, of physics. I also think my penchant for image manipulation stems from this love of the surreal.
Photography has been a passion of mine since I was a child. I would experiment with the family camera from a young age, which often brought annoyed looks from my father and his oft-repeated phrase, that “a photo was a waste if no one was in it”. Luckily, I ignored his advice. Perhaps he had a point, it was back in the bygone days of film cameras and he was the one paying for development after all.
