The first thing I ever really wanted to
be was a photographer. In fact I studied and trained for years to become just that, before discovering that commercial photography involved far too many compromises for my liking.
I still consider myself a photographer at heart but these days it is the landscape that captures my imagination and eye.
Since childhood I have had a love affair with the
“great outdoors” and it is sometimes difficult for me to tell if I am in the wilderness to take photographs or I am taking photographs because I am in the wilderness.
