A Country Practice

When asked to write this article, the editor of Professional Photographer magazine described my work as being the A Country Practice article coverphotographic equivalent of James Herriot’s books! Although I’m honoured to be compared with such a well liked writer, and  can see that I may have something of a similar sympathetic eye to my subjects.  I consider myself to be just a working photographer. To get the type of image that I’m told is my recognisable “style”, I have to be willing to pitch in, often helping the subject with what he or she is doing, but at the same time trying not to become part of the photograph. This is where having been raised in the country really helps. Sometimes you have the be able to “read” people and even animals.
