Sorry I am no longer uploading to EPZ. I would like to thank those who genuinely followed my work, but I no longer feel the enthusiasm for EPZ as I once did and therefore have taken the decision to leave the community. I am not sure whether this will be permanent, it seems that way at the moment, but I will not delete my portfolio incase you wish to contact me or to see my latest work visit my WEBSITE or FLICKR.

Many thanks,

Ian

About Me

"We're all capable of taking candid snaps of people and places to capture a moment, but what makes a photographer is the ability to compose a shot that conveys to the viewer what the photographer has seen and felt at that particular moment."

I took up the hobby in 2003, when I purchased my first digital compact camera. Not content taking random snap shots of nature/landscapes; I looked at ways to improve my approach to creating an image. With the help of my father-in-law, an experienced photographer, I saw landscape imagery from a different perspective and soon developed my own style of story telling. Eventually I got my first DSLR in 2008, since then I have built up my knowledge, everything self taught and what i produce now is a result of this.

What does I look for in an image?

I try to capture images with structure, colour and movement as I feel an image should draw you in and make you feel a part of the story; this helps the viewer connect with what I witnessed. My images rarely ever happen at the first attempt, they are the culmination of researching a location and sheer perseverance to get to that eureka moment when all the elements of a composition come together. My images remain faithful to the scene that was witnessed and I like to get everything correct in the camera so he spends very little time working on a PC and more time behind his camera.

Now living in Great Ayton, I have immediate access to some of the most beautiful locations most particularly the North Yorkshire Moors. The majority of my work is done around dawn & dusk; it is at these times when the light can be at its most spectacular creating mood and breathing life into a landscape.

During 2012 I participated in some joint exhibitions and in April/May 2013 I finally got my first solo exhibition which was successful and I hope to do more in the future.
