Maybe a little bit flippant view on my own work today… but take the human element from my photographs and I’m lost.
I would be a terrible landscape photographer.
I’m grateful that over the years I’ve been blessed with opportunities to shoot with so many talented people. Visually I’m striving for simplicity, trying to compose the frame with little distractions, hoping that by doing so I create a perfect scene for the athletes to ’shine’.
Sticking to classic rules of composition or breaking them completely and capturing raw beauty of light the human element fulfils the frame. Take that human element away and those carefully composed images loose scale and become meaningless.
I have photoshopped few images to show you what I mean…
