I am passionate about capturing the world around me and displaying it in a wonderful array of pixels. I aim to show that what seems familiar can be viewed in new and unusual ways - using both my lenses and software to find the extraordinary in the ordinary. In a world of pocket cameras and ready-made filters, it is more difficult to make your art stand out. Sometimes, armed only with a telephone, people are capable of powerful image processing. I work hard on the composition and focus of my images, as well as in post-production. I feel that it is important to strive to create the best possible version of the moment the shutter is opened.
