Over the years, people have tried telling me to change my genre of photography if I want to make a living out of it. I simply can’t do this as I find traditional photography mundane.
Dark, Gothic horror and alternative photography for me is all about capturing the deathly stillness of a Gothic graveyard or capturing the magical presence of a once fantastic building still fighting to stand proud after centuries of ruin. Have you ever wondered about the inhabitants and their experiences of yesteryear when in such beautiful surroundings or do you not see at all?
Lots of subjects have their ghosts within, even the portraits I love to take with those eyes looking at you expressing their hidden demons for only some to see.
Treading the paths of magnificent Victorian cemeteries and spooky old graveyards, reveal numerous tales to spark a creative imagination like mine, especially if you love the vampire of Gothic literature later explored by the wonderful Hammer Horror.
Photography is such a magical medium if used correctly. Here you can view my work as well as treating yourself to photography gifts from the shop.
So sit back, relax with a nice cup of tea and enjoy your stay.
