I'm a graphic designer by profession, after becoming a qualified graphic designer from Plymouth College of Art & Design in the late 90s. I started at Scriptit Ltd as a junior designer and over the years I started getting involved with photography first as a hobby but in recent years it's been a developing passion.
WHY MINIMALIST PHOTOGRAPHY?
It was only a matter of time before I fell into this area of photography even if I hadn’t been influenced by others. This is mainly down to my graphic design training where I discovered a particular talent for a style called White space or Negative space as it's better know as, which is simply the referring to the area around and between the objects (main subjects) in an image. To me, a minimalist photograph is one that conveys a scene using as few elements as necessary. Photos which hopefully convey the emotion of the scene being captured.
WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS?
I like to think the future holds fame and fortune, but I’ll settle for fortune. It is my hope that as time goes on that my overall technical and photographic proficiency will greatly improve and hopefully with that might come a reputation and a high standing in the photographic community and the wider world in general. Whether this happens or not, who can say, but that’s what I hope the future of photography holds for me.
