photography

As an undergraduate I got into photography in quite a big way, but sold my equipment when I moved to London and the flute took over all of my time. A decade later, I had the extraordinary good fortune to travel to India on tour, and I knew I just had to take a camera with me. I took along an old Canon DSLR and a single 50mm prime lens that I'd found on ebay, and my colleagues in the orchestra liked the images so much that they started asking for headshots. Now I had an excuse to expand my kit, to learn more about my camera and to rediscover my joy for street & travel photography - a joy that has stuck around for good!

travel & blogging

I'm at my happiest when exploring new places with a camera. I find the continual search for beauty has helped me see it in some wonderfully unexpected places.

 

When I come home, I even enjoy the time-consuming process of organising and editing all my images. It feels almost like an extension of the trip. While I'm doing this, I try to arrange my thoughts about the trip in a vaguely coherent way. There's usually a story to tell, and I take real pleasure in finding the right words to go with the right images. Click the image below for more.

street photography

I've put together a few galleries of some of my favourite images from the last few years. The majority of these images are taken at a 35mm focal length with a Fujifilm X100 series camera.
