TITLE: "Vik Church in the mist | Iceland "
The first photographs I saw of Iceland was Vik church in the mist. That image has stayed with me ever since and became symbolic of my love for Iceland. Last year was my first trip and the impact of seeing Vik church was exhilarating, if not overwhelming. I had been dreaming of coming to Iceland for so long.
Unfortunately, last year at that time it was an unusually sunny day. Whilst I took literally hundreds of Vik church, they never really captured for me the feeling evoked by that first photograph. However, on my second trip, I was rewarded (if that is the right expression) with an approaching storm. I was going to get my image of Vik church in the mist after all.

I fell in love with photography at the age of 13. It has been a lifelong passion ever since. I look to create strong emotional images that tell a story. The advent of digital has been a revelation for me. It enables creativity and has elevated photography in my view to a more dynamic and innovative art form.
I am particularly interested in long exposure and use it to create high key fine art photographic images. We live in a complex and cluttered world where visual respite is rare. Fine art photography uses negative space to create a sense of calm, allowing the viewer to focus on the main subject without distractions.
With the advent of Photoshop fine art photography has flourished. Often the process requires not just a pre-conceptualisation of the final creative concept, but the expertise to be able to handle and master complex post-processing. I find both parts of the creative journey highly rewarding.
