A mile long stone.

It's been just over 3 years now that I started along this journey that is (and will continue to be) film. And in just under 3 weeks I will be having my first ever solo exhibition. Pretty pumped. This of course is only the beginning. With future plans for more travel, Scandinavia looks wonderful, and of course more exhibitions both solo and group. 

I have thus far partaken in 5 group exhibitions and soon 1 solo exhibition. Some I was not able to attend due to location, but that's ok.  

I write an occasional blog post about what I'm up to, projects, features and my creative / technical process. I guess I just love sharing my knowledge and experiences, to hopefully a wide audience. Having recently decided to start leading group workshops, to share and even learn myself a thing or 3 not only to share my things, but also hear and see what others are making with their cameras. Conversation starters. Learning from each other. Even potential collaboration opportunities.

There are still many photographic areas that I would love to explore, such as medium and large format. With a multitude of different camera systems, shooting styles, film types. I've got a few ideas, but this will have to wait for now. And also my current setup of 35mm, looking at different lens types to explore such as animorphic, tilt/ shift, fisheye, ultra-wide... The list goes on. Having recently developed a fascination with cinematic/ cinematography techniques alongside my personal pursuit / obsession with lines (architecture) and light. All being a major focus of my work or my 'style'. Street, architecture and landscape.  Good lighting is generally the key to a good photograph. Whether it be hard or soft, light sculpts a photograph.

This is me in a shell of nut. 


Say 'ELLO'

Today I joined 'ELLO' a social space for sharing and nothing else. No fuss, no clutter, no worries.

Follow me here.

The layout is simple and beautiful (or simply beautiful). Minimalistic and clean in it's approach. Focusing on what's important. Sharing. Which ever way you look at it. A way to connect and meet other creative (or inspiring) humans from around the world. I love seeing (and meeting) other creatives from different places. Cultural, environmental, historical, roots/ origin > influences. Process, the journey of creating something. Be it digitally, by hand or something else? Perhaps. 

I love talking to people about stuff

In particular when someone says "I really like that photo". 

"Thank you :)" Then I start to explain how I shot / compiled it, a little story about it. I guess I take my work quite seriously and love talking to people about my work. 

This is my passion. Film photography. Not confined by what others want, rules, regulations, guidelines, briefs. Bah ram them. I have done creative things for others in the past, most of the time with much delight.

But. It kind of became a drag when they would say, "can you replicate this persons style?" or "can you change that or this?" 


I take my work too personally now for those sort of things. I love to express my creativity my own way.
