Finally Reached 1000 views on this image - thanks everyone



Thanks for visiting my humble corner of PP. I'm an amateur photographer with many years of experience; primarily focusing on wildlife, nature, historic architecture and landscape scenes. My first proper camera back in 1987 was a Praktica MTL 50 SLR , which I abandoned after a few years for the convenience of compact cameras. The past 5 years I've 'returned to the fold' and loving DSLR photography. I love taking photos - if I see something I find interesting while I'm out and about, or something that I want to capture for posterity - I usually have a camera somewhere close at hand.

Over the past few years I've now had the pleasure to work with a number of models in both studio and location environments, and I've been constantly learning new techniques and skills with both camera and lighting and in post-editing. I particularly enjoy editing and creating artistic composite images with people in historic, mythical or natural settings.

I'm hugely influenced by the works of the Pre-Raphaelites, and British and Irish Mythology. I would love to work on location projects with models who enjoy Gothic, Steampunk, Re-enactment costume and cosplay. When shooting with models I generally like to work with a particular concept or theme in mind - something that tells a story. I've been nicknamed 'the prop king' because I always take a bag of props along to every shoot that I do. Ultimately I'd love to create a piece of art that captures all that I admire about the beauty of the works of Gabriel Dante Rosetti (...it's a long road I travel)

On the other side of the lens I enjoy taking part in cosplay and period costume re-enactment photography and have a number of authentic historic costumes and props.

I'm also working on expanding my home and portable studio equipment. I now have a pair of 60W LED Softbox lights and various backdrops.

My main interests and styles are in -

Ancient and Medieval
Pre-Raphaelite
Gothic
Pagan and Neo-pagan Themes
Cosplay
Steampunk
Sci-Fi

I also have a Retouch site on Purple Port, where I display significant  work that I have created using stock images of models by other photographers. None of my edits involve the use of Photoshop or Lightroom.

As a personality I am relaxed, friendly and easy-going and quite happy to allow any creative project to develop beyond its original concept.

Rick
