"Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst" - Henri Cartier-Bresson

Subject wise, I feel I have my primary directions set with B&W work. Location work (landscape and architecture) remain the 'serious work' and from the outset I'm always looking for a minimal way to render the scene. Easy said than done.

Arriving on a location I try and visual a quietness around and through the scene. I start by slowing down, taking my time and working the location (when the timing of the shot allows for it). I've always like the term minimizing through deconstruction — viewing various camera angles and crops that for wil remove unnecessary elements. Minimalism dictates shooting in a low and quiet light which translates to arrving at a location early dawn and returning again in late afternoon working towards twilight.
