As a graphic design student in London, I saw some of J M William Turner's landscapes and seascapes and was intrigued by his interpretation of light and the movement of water.
Now, after having spent over 30 years as a designer, I have started photographing long exposure seascapes, mainly at sunrise and sunset - trying to capture the flowing quality of water and time.
Usually, photography is a medium that freezes a moment in time – but I believe my work extends that moment so that the flow of time can be seen.
My technique imparts a painterly quality to my work, but none of my images have been processed through any “paint effects” software of filters. I prefer printing my work on canvas which complements the effect.
