Expressing my passion for nature with truth and consideration.
The beautifully poetic French word for twilight is ‘l'heure entre chien et loup’, or ‘the hour between the dog and the wolf’. The phrase describes the approaching dark as a time when things move from familiar to wild or when the failing light means it’s hard to distinguish between a dog and a wolf. These words feed my passion for our natural world and describes perfectly how light changes everything, which is why I became a photographer.
About the Images
Influenced by the use of the Chiaroscuro technique to emphasise depth, mood and creativity, I only use natural light to convey my narrative, which is to capture with honesty the beauty I see in the shapes and textures of our natural world. With nature seemingly at a knifes edge, I draw comfort from the bond created, together with a new understanding from within my viewfinder, oblivious at the time of other surroundings.
I strive to keep the impact of my work on the environment to a minimum so I use the finest art paperswhich are FSC/PEFC certified, they produce a superb tactile velvety texture in the finished archival print. My subjects are items I have found or grown myself, equipment is pre-loved and recycled.
I also offer acid free archival mounts and art glass to cut reflections and provide longevity giving the best possible look and feel to my work.
The work is signed and all issued with certificates of authenticity.
Handmade Fine Art Framing
Pleased do contact me directly for framing options. I use the finest sustainable materials and solid woods in a fine art framing range, from luxurious contemporary tray frames in walnut to sumptuous traditional oak frames, with optional mount boards and anti-reflective glass.
Although very beautiful, the finishes on my prints can be delicate so offering printing and framing in-house provides the highest standards for quality control.
For guidance please email email@example.com with your requirements. I shall only be too happy to help.
Quality and Sustainability
Carbon Neutral Prints.
Prints comply with archival specifications and are highly resistant to ageing. I use only the finest papers, providing sumptuous textures and rich colour. I can also supply vegan and bamboo papers, please do contact me if you require these alternatives.
I choose suppliers who offer services which are completely carbon neutral. Which means they offset all carbon emissions their business is responsible for whilst incorporating other green initiatives. From using biodegradable and recycled packaging to using organic milk and palm oil free biscuits for their morning cup of tea!
