may hill house cockerel for crows feet

My father worked as a press photographer and I grew up with the sharp vapours of the darkroom. Although I studied photography at art college, taking photographs for a living really simply grew from the necessity for good images of pots and jewellery for editorial and publicity use. I enjoy the discipline that framing a composition on screen or through a viewfinder imposes and I especially like to keep images visually clear and concise. I often play a visual game with myself, assessing how little of an object can be included before the object becomes unidentifiable - this often allows me space in the image to get close up and show surface qualities, for example.
