NEWS AND INFORMATION
Hello and Thank You for browsing my website.
I am a Buddhist and follow a path of meditation and contemplation and as a photographer l use the mindfulness and awareness techniques from this path to keep my mind fully present as l make a photograph. With a clear mind l will connect to the spark of primary perception - the direct perception and experience that occurs when the attention is first drawn to something. This is non-conceptual, unconditioned perception, when the difference between subject and object, me and it, cease to exist; when the essence of the phenomenon or situation is experienced.
Taking the photograph in this mind space l hope to communicate to the viewer the essential nature, the inherent stillness or the sacredness of what l am photographing and have experienced.
I would welcome your commissions and be more than happy to provide you with a quote. Indoors, outdoors, .... no job is too small. I also offer a photographic restoration service of old and damaged photographs. Prices for this depend on how damaged the original is. Please contact me for more information and prices.
I hope you enjoy browsing this site and please do come back as l am always in the process of renewing the site and adding stock images.
Many thanks, Colin
