Ive always taken photographs,
I remember my first photos taken with an Agfa Iso Rapid cassette camera, the anticipation while I waited for them to be developed and the crushing disappointment of how bad they were when I opened them in the chemists.
From the ubiquitous and brick heavy Zenith E i then moved to a vintage 120mm Korelle Reflex dated 1936 and made by Franz Kochmann, Dresden with a 135mm Carl Zeiss Jena lens and was introduced to the joys of the dark room at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, the importance of in-camera composition and the impact that ISO, Shutter Speed, and Aperture have.
My photos now vary between the reportage of the everyday (as seen in my Instagram feed :dummut) to stylised and graphically composed Architectural shots and dreamy Abstract photographs .
What I think a photograph says is not what you might see and while a photograph has an immediacy, once an experience has been fully assimilated, it takes on its own personal meaning,
My photographs have been published, used in web sites, used in the public realm and exhibited in Museums
