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.
