I've been heavily influenced by Glen E Friedman in the last few years...especially with the release of 'dogtown and Z-boys'.
I like to capture the essence of a moment..especially when it comes down to extreme sport photography...there's something gripping and captivating about the level of adrenaline a photo can convey.
When i get bored I find myself experimenting with digital manipulation - colours and perception mainly.
I'm now studying photography as a full time student at university...unfortunately they've kicked me back into the stone age with film and darkrooms!
i know i need ot know this stuff but its so time consuming and to some extent risky - i like to know what i have when i have it!
Canon 10D + Battery grip
Canon 35 - 80mm
Canon 80 - 200mm
Sigma 50 - 500mm
Bronica SQAm 6 x 6
...and soon i'll have a shiny new Canon 5D :D
