Sometimes a single photograph just cannot tell the whole story !
One week in Orvieto, a project to photograph this beauitiful Umbrian hilltop town and capture something of its essence.
Light and Shade in the brightly sunlit streets, the stonework of the magnificent papal cathedral and the patterns of cobbled streets and terra cotta roofs led to this black and white photographic essay.

Personal Choices is a selection of my works that don't fit any specific criteria other than that I like them. They represent photographic moments captured and processed over the past ten years (2007 to 2016). These works are exclusively digital captures.
Whilst some of the included works may have achieved some exhibition success, a significant portion of the works presented here will never be entered into the world of international photography exhibitions.
These works are more personal and not constrained by the rigours of competitive exhibition entry, giving reign to my fascination with pattern, texture, abstraction and minimalism. This enables interpretation of what is before my lens in preference to merely documenting what is in front of me.

In The Clouds
June 2017, a fine art photography workshop led by Peter Eastway and Tony Hewitt on Middlehurst Station, in the South Island's remote Awatere Valley.
Whether on ground, or in the air, the sense of being in the clouds was ever present, accompanied by changeable early winter weather that challenged the photographer every step of the way.
To achieve a body of visual, photographic art that satisfies self, and hopefully enlightens others, requires a clarity of vision and purpose and the self-belief to take chances with the available light and weather conditions.
A photographer does not always need golden hour conditions to capture the beauty within a landscape.
