These are images of the world taken from a standing position - an eye-level perspective. Some landscapes require detailed planning, others involve the element of chance encounters. The dramatic lighting and extreme weather conditions before a storm on Lake Ndutu in Tanzania illustrates serendipity contributing to the quality of an image.

I had planned to be there but did not arrange the storm.

 

Four main principles govern my approach to photography. The first is that “I photograph what I see”. This proposition dictates the use of a narrow range of lenses with a focal length close to that of the eye. Hand holding my camera, without the use of tripods, allows the freedom to move in a landscape to balance the composition.
