Members Exhibition

The human eye and brain together translate light into colour. Light receptors within the eye transmit messages to the brain, which produces the familiar sensations of colour. Newton observed that colour is not inherent in objects. Rather, the surface of an object reflects some colours and absorbs all the others.

When Red is percieved, it means that red is the only wavelength reflected by the object, all other colours are obsorbed.

My affair with photography stems from a passion for nature, having spent nearly two decades working closely with endangered exotic animals as a zookeeper. 

Documenting those animals in my care started my photographic journey, and ultimately lead to my graduation in 2013 with a BA honours degree in photography. Over the years, I have refined my photography skills alongside my understanding of animal behaviour I hope translates through my images. 

My more recent work has predominantly seen me perfect my fieldcraft skills, allowing me to capture some very close encounters with Suffolk’s amazing wildlife. My work, however, can often take on a more abstract or oblique approach; however, I never stray from my roots and there is always a central thread of nature.
