I am a fine art photographer using themes of abstraction and manipulation. Throughout all of my images there is an abstracted view of the subject being photographed. I come from an Art & Design background so there I am influenced heavily by artists/painters and art history.
I use post-production as the main way my to alter my images as I have complete creative freedom when editing and changing the work I make.
I also like the experimentation aspects when using post-production as there is an element of surprise for both myself and the viewer, as to how the final selection looks and works. This idea of the unknown interests me and becomes the running them throughout my works.
This huge influence from art history allows me to use artists such as, Joseph Mallord William Turner, as starting points when beginning my projects and take his techniques and styles into consideration within my own work.
