“Does this subject move me to
feel, think and dream?”
– Ansel Adams
I’m a New Zealander living in Dorset in England. I’m sure as a Kiwi I have a love of the outdoors encoded into my DNA and visiting Mother Nature is a national obsession for us. Bring that national obsession half way around the planet and you end up with a mountain of photographic material at your doorstep. I now have close to thirty countries and cultures within the same flight time as it takes to travel to Australia from NZ. The photographic opportunities abound!
Have a look around, and I hope I can portray to you the tranquility of sitting by Poole Harbour watching the sun go down or the raw speed of a Spitfire flying past at 300mph. It’s the emotion of a photograph that is important. As Ansel Adams said “Ask yourself: “Does this subject move me to feel, think and dream?”
