19th August is World Photography Day, my posted image on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook represents my world and what inspires me.
The photo of my "creative hub" is full of important images, photographers, Sir Don McCullen, his creativity is matched by his lion heart bravery and Philip Jones Griffiths, a Welshmen who like Sir Don reported on the Vietnam War , his appoach put the Vietnam people into the heart of his imagery, an intellectual giant behind the lens.
Most important my rock ,best friend and wife Connie, she is a left eye dominant photographer, which always put's a smile on my face when she shots, her portraits of me , is recognition of my respect for her skills
Photo albums, full of images of my family, history and life captured
Photo's that I've had published sit above my computer to remind me of the standards I need to reach every shot. In addition the mantra that keep's me honest to what's important to my style "Creative Expression First".
Finally a plaque from my Daughter Victoria which is a great comment on life
"Life is like Photography ...We use the negatives to develop"
A photopraph more than an image of an office presented in Black and White, because although the world is seen in colour we dream in Black and White
