I have been a photographer (well I had a camera) for over 30 years but have only started to take it more seriously in the last 12 years or so. I used to wander off into the countryside and take thoroughly average landscapes until a pivotal piece of critique headed my way. Since then, I have enveloped myself firstly in Nature photography and, more recently, in photographing people both in studio environments and also at large. I am currently an active member of both Ribblesdale CC and Chorley PS. I am a firm believer in 'getting it right in camera' but also on processing images to get the very best from them.
Power and Poise is a digital presentation concentrating on capturing and implying movement using sports and dance images. Both disciplines have their own unique aspects but there is a strong overlap too as they both rely on the physical side and style/form that make them so photogenic. I will talk about the technical aspects of shooting these genres whilst sharing images and some of the ideas that led up to me taking them.
