As an International Award Winning Photographer based in the UK, Art is everything in my life. I do not see a Photographer as someone who simply holds a camera and clicks a button; it is much more than that to me. I believe I see photography quite differently, I see it as a creative process to generate Art. If I could re-name my craft, I would call myself a ‘Visual Artist’. A camera is just a tool that I use to create my vision.
As a former painter, I have always been fascinated and inspired by dramatic and surreal paintings. I consciously try to reflect this in my work and so I brand myself as a ‘Fine Art Photographer’. So how do I define Fine Art Photography? For me, it is simply creating the most beautiful images with a strong flow of emotion and feel. Clients tend to book me due to my vision in creating dramatic ‘Signature Art’ pieces.
You will hear many Photographers who state that they are passionate about Photography. To differentiate myself I would say that I am not just passionate about Photography, I am passionate about how creative I can be. As an Artist, I do not just invest in my equipment, it is important for me to consistently build on my skills, knowledge and experience. Every year I attend the finest workshops, and exhibitions in the UK which enable me to continue to feel inspired and grow as an Artist.
