Welcome to my corner of EPZ! Thanks for dropping in – your comments and feedback are appreciated. I hope you like what you see! If you do, why not visit my website? C. Illsley Photography also has its own Facebook page...
I'm a landscape, nature and travel photographer (who also dabbles in a few other genres from time to time), originally from England but now based in Germany.
Like many outdoor photographers, I came to photography through hiking – I wanted to capture the amazing scenery, changing weather conditions and “it’s good to be alive” moments that I go out into the hills for. Over the course of time I have naturally also found many other suitable motifs and my hobby has become a passion.
I aim to capture the essence of a scene as well as a "sense of place" and use largely digital equipment to do so. Digital technology has changed photography in a fundamental way, but I believe that computer processing should only be used to help communicate this essence. While my images have been edited to a certain extent, all types of alienation have been avoided.
