I started my career as a screenwriter, which is an incredibly technical and visual way to paint words on a page. After selling some scripts and having no real grasp of the production process that supports them, I pursued training in production. Over years of developing skills across camera operation, interviewing, editing, directing and producing, my skills in selecting vision to enhance my words lead me to the silent art of photography. There is a freedom in letting a picture just speak for itself that film can never give me and a sense of satisfaction in experiencing the full spectrum of communication via each medium.
In a world where visual trickery is common place, I wanted to capture something magical that only exists between the camera and me without the use of post production. It feels more honest and exciting in a sea of digital wizardry.
At the start of exploring how to display my work for exhibitions, I had been printing the photographs onto many mediums - different paper stocks, fabric and glass with great results. From there it seemed natural, as the images were sources of light, to put lights behind the pictures. I have developed wall sized commercial grade light boxes and my clients have commented on the different kind of ambience it gives their commercial or domestic spaces. I am in love with the notion of creating practical applications for my abstract photographic work that allows people to immerse themselves into the colour and movement.
