Thoughts

As a 12 year old I used the family Kodak Brownie 127 and found that what I saw was not what I got.

Cameras haven't changed much despite being esconsed in lots of impenetrable rubbish, the three interdependant parameters are still all I need to know. Many years of hands under the enlarger light enabled me to approach what I saw and having nothing else I was quite satisfied. The advent of Photoshop has set people like me free to create whatever I like.

Most importantly for me I am one of those fortunate enough to have found what I want to do photographically it fills my mind like nothing else. I love the countryside that surrounds us here, I like the towns not far away, the scrap yards are wonderful places to find images and I love making montages, above all I like to create images that I think are beautiful.

I work on each image separately and what I do varies according to how I felt at the time I took the photo. I am a chancer rather than a photographer what the camera sees is not what I saw but is only someway towards it. That's why I like to take full control over the process from inception to presentation. I can spend a whole day on one image and not get it 'right'. I have to leave it with the thought that there is something good there I just haven't found the right way into it yet.

And what a glorious moment it is to finally see the image emerge just how I wanted it to be. It's one of the joys in my life.
