‘New Work’

Updated: Dec 18, 2022

I feel the need, not the need for speed, although I have watched Maverick and it’s good but to explain why I call my images ‘Work’

When I set out wanting to be a landscape photographer I knew that it would take a lot of hard work, a lot of early starts, a lot of patience, a lot of travelling, a lot of frustration, and a lot of being pissed off.

I love doing what I do but it can come at a cost.

I am nowhere near professional, I want to be but it is some time off and I know that will be even more hard work.

Working full time, spending time with my wife, step daughters, dogs, friends and my own time gives me only a small window of opportunity to get out and photograph the images I want.

Don’t get me wrong, I live next to the New Forest and I can get to a great spot in just a few minutes but then comes the weather, the time and the tides.

Landscape photography is a passion for me, I enjoy working hard on it. I enjoy the feeling when I know I have a great shot, I love the feeling when I see perfect light, I love getting a print back from the printers and seeing it as I imagined it.

But with all that comes the work.

The images don’t just happen.

I plan, I plan again, and once at the location, I spend sometimes hours working the composition.

An average shot will take about 3 hours from start to finish.

Getting there, setting up, shooting (sometimes more than one image of the same subject) then it’s getting home, editing, updating my website, and then social media.

So the Image that you see really is ‘New Work’

The fact that I love what I do helps immensely.

I get support from my family and friends.

And as much as I am worn out after a long day or weekend in the wilds.

I wouldn’t change it for the world.
