Nature Photography
Having specialized in Nature Photography for most of my life, I find it a powerful tool for sharing information of the world around us. It aids scientific knowledge, increases our connection with the ‘natural’ world, while at the same time provides aesthetic pleasure. There is no ‘one set’ method for Nature Photography; it is through the experiences of practice itself that we learn to express our particular style.

Once upon a time, once upon a place

Nature's bounty is to be found in a rain forest, woodlands, rose garden, a grassy hillside, a lagoon of waterlilies, or a fallen leaf upon a public bench alive to the morning sunlight.

Photography is a perfect medium for creative self-expression. Because a photograph speaks hundreds of words of description, we can 'train' our eyes to attune to subject matter too often brushed aside, considered mundane and ignored. However, press the shutter and record an intimate moment with life. The obvious is frequently the most elusive; it's a bit like looking for my eye-glasses when I've just set them atop of my head.

The obvious, when artistically-photographed, surpasses any attempts of the mind to project the human condition upon it. A great photograph does the talking, prompting the viewer to see far beyond the obvious. ....
