Why are you practising this art form?
“Ansel Adams said “You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.” and this couldn’t be more accurate. Photography provides me with an output for my emotional energy and I often travel back to the tougher times in my life to provide emotional energy for my imagery. I work largely in wildlife conservancies, investing hours into every image. The challenges associated with capturing each image are considerable but I would be concerned if the job was easy; the world has seen many images of animals, the challenge is garner unique imagery and this was never going to be easy. It can be lonely, cold, frustrating and I often fail, but that’s all part of the game and as I’ve learnt throughout life, nothing worth having comes easy.”
