I am a Sussex-based photographer who enjoys trying to push the boundaries of what photography can be

I used to paint, and I think as a consequence of this, I am drawn towards flat, abstract renditions. I use multiple exposures and camera movement to help simplify the detail in a scene.

It is a way of working which is controllable to a certain degree, but still has a great deal of unpredictability about it. Post processing is generally limited. I prefer to achieve the structure, detail and composition I want in camera and then tweak the colours and contrast in Lightroom. The consequence of this approach however is an overflowing trash can and a doubtless rapidly deteriorating shutter.
