About PurpleT

Much of my photography is art and documentary. I try to capture a scene as i see it in my mind, whether that be black and white, colour, or somewhere in between. I try to make an interesting, and/or attractive image from what i see around me, not just what would be expected, but also subjects that would be seen boring, mundane, or ugly by many. But they all have an interest as art photography. I have also spent nearly twenty years working as a life model, then the human figure in art is very important to me, and is something i try to bring into my work at times.

Minimal Landscape.

When out in the countryside, sometimes, instead of photographing sweeping landscapes, sometimes it’s nice to keep it a bit more minimal. Maybe use the curve of a hill against the sky. Following on from my last blog post walking up … Continue reading
