"I often admire the creativity of the digital fiddlers who spend hours in front of a computer creating and assembling their imaginary images. It is just not for me. I like the purity, honesty, and integrity of location photography, the thrill of chancing upon the unexpected, and the discovery of an exciting shot in an initially unpromising place.
We all see the world slightly differently. It is never my intention to mimic another photographer's shot, but to bring my own vision to bear to produce an individual and personal point of view. I constantly strive to produce images that are different. Deep within me is a creative urge, and probably a frustrated artist too. I realised long ago that I do not have any real ability with a pencil or brush, and so I turn to my camera, and photography, to express my vision.
In this lecture I discuss the creative process that I use, both when out shooting, and subsequently when producing my prints. The lecture features many of my latest prints, and culminates in the work that I produced to earn my RPS Fellowship.”
