ABOUT ME AND CREATIVE PHOTOGRAPHY WALES
Thanks for visiting my website. I hope you will enjoy looking at my images but I thought you might also be interested in hearing a bit more about me and of Creative Photography Wales.
I have always had a passion for the outdoors; the mountains in particular, travel and for landscape photography. I used to earn a living firstly as a Landscape Architect and subsequently the director of a community regeneration charity in South Wales.
On reaching my 50th birthday I decided it was time for a career change (otherwise known as a mid-life crisis!). Rather naively I thought I'd make a living out of climbing mountains and taking pictures.............if only making a living out of photography was so simple!
So, a year after doing little else but taking pictures and realising that digital photography wasn't just a new version of taking pictures on film, in August 2009 Creative Photography Wales was born with a plan to combine my photography with some aspects of my professional background..........not that I ever intended to become a teacher!
So for and in the main so good.....if you want to know any more about my business either call me on 01874 676402 or go to the Contact Page
WHERE WE ARE
Creative Photography Wales is based at my home in Talybont on Usk, a village in the heart of the Brecon Beacons in mid-Wales. It's a perfect base from which to take great photographs! The picture on the left was taken in the very cold & snowy December 2010!

|MY APPROACH TO PHOTOGRAPHY
Although my photography comes mainly from Wales and from a cross section of places elsewhere in the UK and the world, where and how they were taken is secondary to the visual result of my work. My speciality is to take pictures of familiar places and people in imaginative ways, using natural light and the strengths of the camera to best effect.
Like most photographers looking to make a living out of their passion, I am often torn between photography as art and the process of taking pictures of places that people know and recognise because they are more likely to buy them. Hopefully my work strikes the right balance between the two but I'm always happy to listen to constructive feedback!
