Welcome to my artwork, galleries and shop on Pixels.com . I work in a variety of techniques and styles including landscapes, riverscapes, abstract and surreal specialising in landscapes/travel. I have two new online exhibitions and have published three books of my work.
I take photographs because I really enjoy photography. I endeavour to create digital art because I LOVE art. My fascination with computer graphics began about 35 years ago with some software that I got on a free floppy disk on the cover of a computer magazine and ever since then I've been hooked. I've come a long way since then, the software that I use is now much more sophisticated but my enjoyment hasn't in any way diminished. I got my first camera at the age of 9, a battered old twin-lens reflex camera which my grandfather "loaned" to me and my first serious camera, a 35 mm film camera, in my late teens.
The thing that I most enjoy about photography is finding subjects/locations and imagining how they might look when I’ve had a chance to work with my images. So there’s a sort of feedback loop already going on in my head when I’m looking around and taking pictures.
What the camera sees is one thing what my mind’s eye sees is another thing entirely. What I’m always searching for in a scene are aspects such as perspective, textures, compositional elements and lighting etc. and well beyond that how I can work with these when I’ve downloaded my images which brings me on to processing (hate the term), for me, by far the most important and exciting part.
A while back I came across the perfect description for my type of work “Paintography” some years after I stumbled into it completely unaware that there was such a thing. I guess this is where the photographer in me stops and my artistic side takes full-rein if indeed one can separate one from the other. Put simply, this is the point where I have complete artistic freedom to explore and mix different techniques and open the lid on a Pandora’s box of artistic possibilities, such a large box that even after some years I’m very much still discovering and experimenting with new things.

🎨 Paintography 📷
A combination of Digital Photography and Digital Painting This is more than editing a photograph, it includes actual digital painting segments in the same work of art, generally on canvas. Artists using digital photography as a basis for a digital painting are doing paintography." (urban dictionary)
