I have always loved to spend time on my own with a camera. It’s a chance to totally switch off and immerse myself in the natural world, and I hope also a chance to capture light, colour and fine detail. Anyone who loves taking pictures can appreciate the frustrations involved with ‘chasing light’. Indeed I seem to spend my life doing just that. It so often seems it’s simply not quite right, too grey, too dull, too bright, too much, too little. But when it all comes together there is a mad rush to record the moment. For me it’s not all about capturing the finest landscapes, and the most usually sought wildlife, but often the tiniest details on the woodland floor, the colours of minute insects, or the patterns of lichen, leaves and petals. Nature is perfection and every time I venture out I discover new things.
