I currently live in Crystal Palace and have been taking photographs seriously for the last four years.
My interest in photography has stemmed from receiving a Zenit 122 from my Grandfather after he passed away. The camera sadly languished under his bed for several years until a trip to Pyestock with the point and click, this re-ignited a latent interest and prompted the purchase of a few rolls of 35mm and a trip to East Sussex for a wander around a well known asylum.
I initially resisted the urge to ‘go digital’ preferring the purity of film, however finally made the jump after a trip to Belgium and the discovery of Photoshop and the manner in which images can be enhanced.
I now shoot mostly digital, however I do have a collection of old (vintage) cameras using, both medium format and regular 35mm, I do always try to take one of the film cameras out on trips to capture a different, generally unprocessed set of images. and record a more varied record of a visit.
Subject matter is still mostly dereliction and decay, both industrial and architectural. The post processing is as much of a challenge and enjoyment as composing and taking the initial shot. Most of my images are altered in some way, be it making a more gritty image or smoothing a portrait. HDR is also often employed, but in a hopefully subtle way.
I am happy to discuss rates for most projects and am particularly interested in shooting residential or retail projects producing regular images as well as 360 panoramas.
