Creative PhotographyA chance to play and experiment

“It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer. You need less imagination to be a painter, because you can invent things. But in photography everything is so ordinary; it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the ordinary”. David Bailey - In "Face," (London), Dec 1984.

I'm Andy's wife and I may be the best person to do the words for the creative section! What can I say – there are 3 things in our marriage – Andy, me and all his camera equipment! He never goes anywhere without a camera – it may be a pocket size camera, or the Full Monty of tripod/light reflectors/lenses and all sorts, but there's always some clever gadget to hand...

We'll be walking the dog and the sunrise will start to take our breath away and Andy is there with a camera capturing the moment. We'll have a wonderful Saturday night with friends and Andy will call me over to the PC the next morning and show me all the pictures from the night before, which I never even saw him take – laughs, smiles, deep conversations – and the great time we had comes flooding back.

It snows and I wonder where Andy's gone and back he comes from the garden with pictures of frozen cobwebs, fir trees laden with frosting and all sorts of magic. It's like he continually looks at people and the world around him in terms of how he can keep something special for more than a moment.

Andy just loves photography – it's not a job to him, it's a passion. I love the quote above from David Bailey – that's what Andy does – he imagines the special in the ordinary and captures it. In his sample photos – look at the curves he sees around the beautiful Wales Millennium Stadium. With the NY skyline, he turns concrete into a mood...

I can't be mad that he's never without a camera when we have so many stunning photos around the house. Plus, how can I complain when he's offered to airbrush me any time I want?! Now that's creative!

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.” Aaron Siskind
