What is your practice? materials? processes?
As a Visual Artist Photography has been my main medium since I left University in 2008. I look at the extraordinary in the ordinary using my digital / film SLR Canon camera, no manipulation is used. Presently I am using my mobile phone more as this helps to capture an image when walking with my family and my dog Stanley in my everyday life. This still excites me and iphoneography is a great way to be creative. Come and see which images you think are taken on my mobile phone!!!!
