My photographic aspirations are based around my filmmaking and I see photography as both a way to enhance my film projects and as another way to tell a story. There are 3 main types of photography that inspire me.
- Wildlife Photography,
Wildlife Photography to me is the height of photography, it is as beautiful as it is scientifically valuable. Each photograph carries data that can be used to study the animal in question from getting an idea of what the animal looks like to its behaviour, habit and biology.
A raw genre of photography but by no means necessarily ugly, photojournalism is about telling a story that is honest and impartial. Usually used to reveal the worse in humanity.
- Fine Art Photography
Photography as an art form, not merely documenting reality but shaping the world into the vision that the photographer sees in their own minds eye. I like work that is a little bit abstract, a little bit fantasy much like the way I handle drama and feature films. I sometimes see this sort of photography as a taster, a recce where I feel I can play around a little bit more with colours and textures.
