For me, each picture has an identity that is sufficient to itself. I don't do projects. However for display purposes, I organise my pictures around certain themes. I re-visit these themes over many years, so each collection is ongoing.
Walking paths and byeways with my dog, a home-fashioned, easy-in-the-hand stick and a camera is essential to me. I find walking and photography to be deeply interconnected, whether in the countryside or city. Indeed, after a long confusing period of not knowing what kind of a photographer I wanted to be, I now consider myself to be simply a photographer of the path and the inconsequential things 'happened upon' when walking.
I predominantly use film and develop my prints in my own darkroom. I work with 35mm, medium and large format. I print in silver-gelatin and a range of alt-pro techniques, such as Bromoil, Oil, Paper Negatives and Salt. I find that this gives me the wide range of expression that I need to convey how I see.
On occasion, I use digital techniques. Whatever works to express how I see the light is fine. However if the scene allows, I prefer traditional methods. There is something particularly engaging in hand-crafting an object of note, especially when a print can take many days to come together.
