His Masters Voice


Texture, textures everywhere in this room, from teh green mold and peeling paint of the walls to the record player with its ornate tonearm and exquisite detailing

Colours in my photos have been rare of late, I have tended to tone images down but this one definitely needed it.
This was also edited on my new Surface Pro 3, which is starting to redefine the way I edit my photos, but I will get to that later…

The Staircase


A grand staircase, or at least it was
This was a revisit to a house that a few months ago had a grand banister running down the staircase, now the place was wrecked, vandals had ruined the murals as well as the elaborate woodwork that was found in the other roomw

LumenPrize 2014


the lumen prize shortlist 2014

My digital artwork “Angels and Demons” made it to the shortlist for the lumenprize 2014 which im over the moon about.
its a collection of images taken in various places around Belgium and especially highlights the difference in modern architecture and the old buildings that made up most of the industrial areas of the country

There is a public vote and I don’t normally like these processes but if you dont mind helping me out and taking a few mins to register and vote I would appreciate it (but only if you like the image)

Any winnings from this will be donated to charity

the url for public voting is : http://lumenprize.com/user/register

The Lumen Prize Exhibition celebrates the very best art created digitally. Our goal is to focus the world’s attention on this exciting genre of art through an annual competition and global tour of the works selected by our eminent panel of judges.

The baby Orangutan and the fly


There seems to be an overload of wildlife photo’s, normal service will be resumed shortly 🙂

I have discovered quickly that with wildlife, the photos that you get have one heck of a “chance” element to them, out of all of my Orangutan pictures its this that highlights this the most.
The one photo where the fly is actually visible and the baby looks like he has just noticed it. There was no way that I would have seen this but it was such a surprise seeing it on my computer screen.

I will upload some more of this set, but there are some more photos uploaded here at lensculture.com

Aesthetica Art Prize


The Aesthetica Art prize is a long running competition which I had entered quite some time ago.
Before the end of last year, I had heard that I had made the first cut and then a week ago, they informed me that I had made the longlist of 100 artists which will be featured in the Anthology book that they publish.
Out of over 1500 entries, thats not bad going. My print was not shortlisted for the actual exhibition (only 8 were chosen) and none of the finalists were photographers so I dont feel too bad.

anesthetic

Anesthetic was taken in an abandoned hospital in Germany, this was an icy cold day and the hospital was in a snow covered woods just outside a small village.
