Projects


 

Welcome to my Projects page.

This page showcases some of my most recent projects. In the case of a a new series showcasing a certain area, the shooting trip is usually planned and organized weeks or even months in advance with various locations scouted specifically for their potential opportunity to capture a particular landscape scene.

However, while the conditions presented by each of the four seasons are carefully considered, no matter how much preparation goes into each trip, the one factor that cannot be entirely planned for is the weather and quality of light provided on each of the planned shooting days.

Thank you for taking the time to view these new photographs and I sincerely hope that you enjoy them.

Urban Contrasts Series

I wanted to share a long-term project that I have been working on for the last few months. I currently have no defined project end-point but rather a desire to slowly evolve a style and technique that has always interested me. 

For a long time I have had more than a fleeting interest in design and architecture and while I enjoy older classic buildings I feel a stronger draw to more modern and minimalist architectural designs. Minimalism is a design and architectural style and there is currently a school of thought that the general state of the economy plays a key factor in determining whether the minimalist style is in vogue or not. Basically, the theory goes that when the economy is booming, the general trend in design and architecture is to be flamboyant, extravagant and even garish as a means of exhibiting a measure of wealth and success, whereas in times of austerity, the design trend naturally favours a more scaled-back approach.

Scottish Landscapes Series

The month of May was a really busy time for me from both a commercial and landscape point of view. I had the good fortune to combine both during a 15 day commercial project to Scotland by including a 5 day tour around the Highlands and Isle of Skye.

The fast changing and variable weather conditions were a challenge and, to some extent, restrictive. However, this constant change is an important part of what makes Scotland's landscape so beautiful and unique.

Some of the locations I photographed at include Loch Sunart, Ranoch Moor, Loch Oich, River Coe, Ballachulish, Applecross Pass, Three Sisters Valley, Loch Alsh as well as the Isle Of Skye.

High resolution versions of each photograph can be seen within their respective Portfolio Gallery. Some are also available to purchase. For more details on prices and availability, please check out The Print Shop.

 


Galician Landscapes Series

During the second half of August 2014 I was fortunate to travel with my family to the autonomous community of Galicia in the northwest of Spain. This was my first ever visit to this region and a welcome escape from the stifling heat of my home province of Andalucía.

Photographed over 10 days, what follows is a short series of Galician Landscapes. You can read more about the area and my trip on my Blog.

High resolution versions of each photograph can also be seen within their respective Portfolio Gallery. Some are also available to purchase. For more details on prices and availability, please check out The Print Shop.


New Series - Cabo de Gata - Níjar Natural Park

Located in the province of Almería, the following slide-show showcases the new photographs from my most recent trip to the Cabo de Gata - Níjar Natural Park in Southern Spain. This park is Andalucía's largest protected coastal area. The landscape exhibits both a rugged, wild and isolated topology with Europe's only Warm Desert climate. You can read more about the area and my trip on my Blog.

High resolution versions of these photographs can also be seen in their respective Portfolio Gallery, some of which are now available to purchase. For more details and availability, please check out The Print Shop.

 

New Series - Sierras de Cazorla, Segura y Las Villas Natural Park (Jaén)

In early May of this year, I set off on my first trip to the Sierras de Cazorla, Segura y Las Villas Natural Park. I spent five days travelling and hiking through the Park and scouting the various locations that I had researched. Established in 1986 and with an area of over 2,000 square kilometeres (800 square miles), the park, located in the province of Jaén, is the largest protected area in Spain and the second largest in Europe.

On heading home, I felt that while I had come away with some of my planned photographs, I had also discovered other potential opportunities for the Autumn and Winter seasons.  This Park is simply far too large to cover in a single trip and I can see myself returning to the area for many years to come.

Each of the photographs from the following slide show can also be seen in high resolution within their respective Portfolio Gallery, some of which are also available to purchase. For more details and availability, please check out The Print Shop.
