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 throughout the site are many photographs taken in
his home county of West Sussex with others from Dorset, Scotland, New Zealand and
With the age of digital many photographers manipulate their work to some degree,
and with digital this is easily overdone. Simon`s images have only had minimal work
carried out which may include saturation increase, contrast adjustment or B & W conversion.
Many of these techniques where used decades before, but digital has brought creative
flexibility to Simon`s finger tips.
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 utilising hand blending
techniques with adjustment layers and luminosity masks for superb clarity.
Simon`s image workflow uses the latest methods of digital processing and techniques.
This being very 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.
