I’m Will and this is my blog and portfolio.
The images and words here are usually the result of various trips to different places with my camera, which I enjoy enormously. The main focus is on the images but I also write about some of the images and the story behind them.
I have no formal training in photography, instead honing my skills over time through sheer practice and by keeping good company with other photographers for whom I have great respect.
With my photography, my general philosophy is to try to remain faithful to what is in front of the camera.
For almost all images, I don’t add anything to – or remove anything from – the original image, preferring instead to work with what I captured.
At the processing stage, I work to produce a particular ‘feel’ in an image, to convey something of the sense I had when making the exposure.
My current camera is a Nikon D800 with a 24-85mm 2.8 lens, which I use almost all of the time. Sometimes I revert back to my Canon EOS 5D Mark II and a selection of Canon ‘L’ series lenses.
I print my own images using an Epson Stylus Photo R2880 A3-sized printer, using Epson paper and original Epson Ultrachrome K3 series inks.
Image post-processing and editing is done using Lightroom 4, Adobe Photoshop CS5 and Photomatix on an Apple iMac and MacBook Pro.
