When people see my abstract images their first question often is “How do you do this?”. It’s not an easy question to answer but on this page I will try to give you some idea. My process to create re-imagined photographs relies on combining my knowledge of mathematics with my skills in digital image processing. I start with a digital photograph which I subject to extensive manipulation in image processing software. This often includes far reaching changes to the shapes and colours of the image. The result presents the viewer with a new reality which they are free to explore with their own imagination.
As a photographer I am instinctively drawn to the natural and urban landscape and it is here that I most readily find the material for my work. I take my inspiration from simple compositions, repeating patterns, or interesting textures, and I often apply advanced photographic techniques, such as Selective Focusing or Intentional Camera Movement. These can simplify a scene by making irrelevant detail invisible. 
My processing workflow can best be described as a journey of discovery. While experimenting with a variety of techniques I set off to explore new shapes and textures, until I arrive at an exciting geometry. Further fine tuning and adjustments to tonal values and the colour palette of the image then takes me to the final result.
