Photography is a means of communication. It’s a way of capturing an event or moment in your life—a record of what you saw and something you can share with others.
All photographers are different; the way they choose a subject, the way they compose the image, the post-processing. My photographs are mainly of landscapes, architecture, buildings and places. I take photographs for their intrinsic value. It allows me to capture moments the way I see them.
When I moved to Spain, I started a photo-blog called Tapas in the sun. It’s about places I have visited in Spain and wish to share, but it’s also about Spanish culture, food and tapas.
It is a common misconception that to take great photos, you must have the latest and best camera. Not true! It’s all about the photographer, the subject and the composition. A good photographer adapts to the surroundings and his equipment. I have seen great photos taken with pinhole cameras. Indeed, different cameras create different looks. You can use that to your advantage. Recently, I have started to shoot film again; that’s how photography started. The cameras I use are over 35 years old, but they are capable of producing great photos.
