Surrounded by awe-inspiring beauty in life, I am captivated by
- the organised chaos of an English Country Garden
- the focal intensity of a full moon over still waters
- the vibrant contrasts in black and white street imagery
- the lines on a face telling of a life experienced
- the unequalled artistry in a magnificent landscape
- the creative genius of animals great and small
- the purity and innocence of young children ...
an endless list ...
life, as we have it given to us, is a journey. The road travelled indeed is full of beauty, once we take the time to stop and smell the roses along the way.
During the 25 years I spent working alongside a professional photographer, my training, although including textbooks, was outside of a formal classroom enviroment. The dynamic little Nikon Coolpix 4500 was the first camera I owned many moons ago, and it quickly taught me that equipment alone does not make a good photographer. Starting out from this viewpoint stood me in good stead as I moved on to DSLR equipment.
Working regularly with newborn puppies and following their development, I have learned great patience with animals and I thoroughly enjoyed pet photography with it's unpredictable subjects. Cultivating patience with animals has enabled me to work well with young children and the camera-shy adult. Although I do studio work, my preference is for natural light. My preferred style is observance (journalistic/reportage) - capturing interesting, authentic and spontaneous as it happens freely. When asked what equipment I use, my first reply is always "the eyes of my mind". The cameras and lenses (Nikon) assist me to create memories of what I saw.
The privilege of bringing joy and beauty into the lives of other people humbles me. It also enhances my own life experience. So please contact me - I look forward to hearing from you!
privileged to be surrounded by my loving, and faithful companions.
