Photography, for me, is about creating a piece of artwork, not just a reminder of a moment in time but a creative image.
I worked for almost ten years as a press photographer covering the FIA European and National Drag Racing Championships. It was primarily for newspapers and magazines, but felt constrained, as picture editors wanted the photo that captured the moment which I provided, mostly straight out of the camera! In 2014 I opted to take my photography in a different direction.
I now concentrate more on landscapes, street photography and portraits, which has allowed me to be more creative.
