I never write much on my photos, I'm not really one for words, but I'm always happy to chat back.

When I do write, I'll tend to write a small story perhaps, something that I imagined as I took the photo or processed it later.

Most of my work is about science, in particular thermodynamics - specifically entropy. Watching everything corrode, decay and it's entropy increase - eventually becoming "useless". It's such an amazing thing to witness, the undoing of everything we have worked so hard to do - the inevitability of it, and our obsession with preventing it.

I also love to take pictures of moving light, to create patterns using things I see.

Finally sometimes I'll take a photo to try and capture a moment, a feeling - but again, I don't like to tell you too much about what to feel, look at the photo, imagine what you want - it's your moment after all, as much as it was ever mine.
Hi All,

Happy new year to everyone!

I have to admit to having been a bit lazy recently with getting work produced edited and uploaded! There really are not too many excuses for this other than "things" seem to have taken over a bit, nothing major or important but just everyday "life" :)

My plans for 2013 are to increase my workload in terms of photography, to continue on the themes i've been exploring but also to produce more oil based work. This is all time consuming stuff but something I really love doing so I need to put some more effort in, clear my schedule a bit more and continue to produce the work I love doing.

In particular plans for the first half of 2013:

- A few large oil pieces. Whilst I have managed to do lots of smaller pieces I'd like to complete a couple of really large paintings I've had in my mind for a while now

- Plan less. My work usually doesn't work out too well when I plan individual pieces, and usually it's the work that I plan the least which actually works really well - so I need to trust my instinct and feeling more

- Spend more time interacting on here. I want to build a bigger network of contacts on here, I already have people that I follow and really enjoy looking at the work they produce but I suspect I have only just scratched the surface!

Anyway enough words, time to get on with some pictures :)
