I'm a self-taught photographer based near Cambridge, UK. The biggest influence on my photography are the works of Michael Kenna and Ansel Adams, and as a result, I tend to prefer working in black and white. With most of my images, my aim is not to render it as realistically as possible, but rather to interpret it in my own unique way.
I really enjoy the fine art aspect of photography. I also particularly favour the long exposure effect. It has a way of softening and smoothing out the hard edges of the world.
I think Michael Kenna said it best with: "Perhaps most intriguing of all is that it is possible to photograph what is impossible for the human eye to see - cumulative time."
