Smugglers Fire

Bonfire celebrations are an important part of Sussex folklore the streets coming alive with fire. I set my camera to slow exposure in order to capture the unreal quality of the evens.

When taking photographs my intention is to connect with the subject in order to convey the essence and spirit of that person or place. I then create a narrative subtext using elements in the environment.
Often there is an uneasy feel to the images that can be unnerving. I aim for a sense of subdued drama with a sense of anticipation.
I have exhibited in the UK and internationally and have been honoured by and won different awards mostly for landscape photography. My work has also been featured in Zoom magazine.
