“Where pure mastery of light becomes a photographic indulgence”
Simon has been interested in photography for many years using film cameras but since
the age of digital it has allowed him to express his creativity and brought a great
enthusiasm to his work.
Showing within the portfolios are a selection of Simons finest photographs taken
in his home county of West Sussex and further afield at the best times of day for
photography, Dawn and Dusk.
With the age of digital all photographers manipulate their work to some degree, and
with digital this is easily overdone.
When adjustments are made it is nearly always limited to the fine tuning of colour
and exposure to maximise the dynamic range within the image. Many of these techniques
where used decades before, but digital has brought creative flexibility to his finger
tips and Simon routinely utilises hand blending techniques, adjustment layers and
luminosity masks for superb clarity and image fidelity.
Using the latest methods of digital processing and imaging techniques is obvious
in the custom prints Simon produces on both high end Inkjet printers and the latest
Light jet, Chromira and Lambda printers.
With the advance in computer software Simon`s panoramic images are composites of
two, three or more images allowing for larger print sizes with excellent reproduction
qualities, but still maintaining the original beauty of the landscape.
Simons work can be seen in selected Sussex and Scottish Calendars and also graces
the homes of private individuals and businesses. Simon has also been commissioned
by Knepp Castle Estate and had an image Highly Commended in the Landscape Photographer
of the year, numerous articles in Outdoor Photography Magazine and in local papers.
