My approach to photography is simply to keep every aspect of how I capture an image as uncomplicated as possible.
I do not alter colours. I do not add elements to an image that were not present at the time of capture. I do not attempt in any way to deceive the viewer.
The excessive use of filters is an anathema to me. I own and use the following filters. Three neutral grey grads, a polariser and a diffusion filter. The fact that the vast majority of my images are taken in low light; just before and just after sunrise and sunset gives the blurred motion effect by default. The effect is a by product of seeking a softer palette of colours.
If you like my work I am of course pleased and flattered. If you don't like my work then that too is Ok. If my work leaves you unmoved then I have failed in my endeavours.
