I don't photograph the world I photograph the aura radiating from it, as a camera is a mechanical device devoid of feelings it takes my intervention to create artwork which reveals emotion. I am predominantly a marine photographer, but what brought me here? The inspirational work of Ansel Adams and Jonathan Chritchley have taught me a great deal, most importantly since I was young being near the sea has heightened my emotions. I reminisce of wonderful family holidays, I recall the coast drawing an impetuous teenager with a new driving licence hours from home simply to stare out to sea while attempting to decipher the turmoil of teenage emotions within. Without realising it, the sea had become a therapist for my adolescent, door slamming, rule defying, angst. Now emotions and the sea are central to my picture production. My pictures capture the emotion, the viewer takes it away with them.
