There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer. Ansel Adams | I do what I feel, that's all, I am an ordinary photographer working for his own pleasure. That's all I've ever done. Andre Kertesz | Photography teaches that how well you see has nothing to do with how well you see. Anonymous | Everyone has a photographic memory. Some just don''t have the film. Anonymous | It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer. You need less imagination to be a painter, because you can invent things. But in photography everything is so ordinary; it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the ordinary. David Bailey | The photograph itself doesn't interest me. I want only to capture a minute part of reality. Henri Cartier-Bresson | Of course, there will always be those who look only at technique, who ask "how," while others of a more curious nature will ask "why." Personally, I have always preferred inspiration to information. Man Ray | If I had a picture of two handcuffed criminals being booked, I would cut the picture in half and get five bucks for each. Weegee | Sometimes I do get to places just when God's ready to have somebody click the shutter. Ansel Adams | All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth. Richard Avedon | These are a few of the masters of photography attempting to describe one of the most prolific activities on the planet, taking photographs. Here is a selection of mine. If you wish to purchase a print or use any of them, please get in touch, I am based in Bromley, South East London but am available for commisssions anywhere on the planet. The 'manipulation' section are not my photographs, they are part of my primary business which is graphic and website design. Please remember that all of these images are copyrighted.
