I’m based in south Cheshire, which is in the north-west of England, but I can often be found wandering around the Wirral Peninsular and Liverpool pursing my favourite photography subjects: street/documentary/reportage, landscape and architecture. I like to create monochrome images in a square format from the images I make.
I am thrilled to be part of the ƒ.50 Collective and I’m looking forward to participating in some of the collaborative projects that are being planned. Exciting times…
My current kit is based around Fujifilm’s X-series cameras; a Fujifilm X-Pro1 is my go to camera of choice with either a Fujinon ƒ2 18mm, ƒ1.4 35mm or ƒ1.2 56mm lens on the front. I also have X-10 and X-20 compacts, which I use as “notebooks” or for times when I don’t want to lug a bag of kit around. There’s also a Nikon D700 in my collection, which I generally use for landscape work although it’s not being used very much at the moment.
Inspiration for me comes from Ansel Adams, Michael Kenna, Robert Doisneau, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Paul Gallagher, David Ward, Fay Godwin and Jane Bown.
