My journey began in London, UK. Arriving at Heathrow at 4:45am local time, I finally made it to the other side of the world. It was a well overdue trip I had always wanted to take. Opening up my eyes to new places, new experiences. With my bag and camera kit in hand and 17 rolls of film, this I knew was going to the trip of a lifetime.
That’s what it was all about really, new experiences. And of course capturing many photographic moments on film would have a certain look, a certain feel to the overall result, but of course taking into consideration the journey. Equally as important as the result. The whole reason why I switched from digital to film just over 3 years ago now.
From wondrous London, to beautiful Paris, the snow-capped Swiss Alps, glorious Barcelona and the way down to and through Italy via the French Riviera, Eastern Europe and off the coast of Croatia, onto historically intriguing Ljubljana with quick stop-over by Lake Bled, gorgeous Prague rich in medieval heritage, amazing Austria with it’s rolling hills, Dresden for lunch (which did not disappoint, Berlin with a wealth of not-so distant history, Amsterdam’s nightlife and amazing architecture, historic little Brugge. All with their own unique flavours.
With a strong focus on architecture, light and lines, my work is defined by my love of design & architecture, couple with my slight obsession with light. Set in 35mm film, the result? Something quite different.
