I take photos. I live in Leicestershire, which I loathe quite a lot of the time, but I'm learning to love it, bit by bit.
You'll see that I like getting out into the countryside when I can but the label 'landscape photographer' makes me feel like I'm wearing slippers and a smoking a pipe. I can only hope that my pictures have enough of me in them to somehow dodge the label. If not - bear with me. I'll get there.
I have no training, just a dislike of photographic cliches and a willingness to submit to them every now and then if absolutely necessary. I only recently learnt that it was okay to look at other photographer's stuff in order to develop. Look and hopefully forget most of it, just taking the bit I can use to inform what I do, in my way, to get across what I want to communicate.
Whatever that is.
Nothing at the moment. Actually, worse than nothing as I stubbed my little toe on a framed pic resting the floor. I think I've broken it.
