The great problem with a passion is you can get carried away with it and labelled by it!
This has happened a few times in recent weeks and months with conversations asking ‘Do you only photograph countryside subjects and dogs?‘ Often from someone looking at a subject that requires a photographic commission in a non-rural environment.
‘So at the risk of being ‘labelled’ as the photographer who only photographs the English Countryside, let me show some of the other work and commissions I have undertaken in recent months’
One commission that bought me both a great pride and immense satisfaction was a commission by the Royal Yeomanry to photograph the centennial anniversary of The Battle of Frezenberg in Belgium, Click Here for the full story.
Another similar commission was for a magazine article and front cover involved an historical re-enactment group of American GIs from World War Two Click Here for a selection of the the images. Plus a most enjoyable day was at two great friends Welly Wedding, again Click here for the full story and some images.
Other commissions have included a project on office waste disposal; tracking the method and improvements that could be made in the removal and disposal of routine waste in a large office complex – so a full day to photograph bins, waste compactors, wheelie bins and dustbins!
So yes I do photograph a wide range of subjects and topics – even if I am always drawn back to my love of the countryside – if you Click Here you will see a recent photo-shoot for a traffic article, but the requirements were no stationary vehicles and I had so show movement and motion. So a couple of hours stood above a busy major truck road on a Friday afternoon provided my inspiration.
