ARTIST'S STATEMENT

My photography is constantly evolving. Having only picked up a camera with strong intentions of taking photography seriously two years ago, I'm still working out what exactly it is that I like to shoot. I let the light direct me, I am always seeking out interesting shapes caused by how the light interacts with people and my surroundings, which is usually the streets of London. I have worked in the motion design industry for 15 years now, so I'm also looking for simplicity in my composition. Strong shapes and as much negative space as I can get in my frame before the image becomes to obscure. I shoot nearly all my images walking to and from work, I find concentrating on this ever evolving yet small part of the city allows me to really learn how the light moves through it. I'm finding this approach also allows me to start to anticipate when something interesting will happen more instinctively.
I started a motion design studio back in 2007 called weareseventeen and I am the father of 2 bonkers girls.
