Hi there! I'm Rob, nice to meet you!
By day I'm a software engineer, but outside of work I like to try my hand at a bit of photography.
I've been shooting for over 15 years now, and have tried my hand at a bit of everything. Over the years I've covered sports and events for the local papers, done a few weddings, dabbled (briefly) in some astrophotography and macro, but it was when I went to Iceland that Landscapes became my thing.
I'm a big fan of colour and simplicity, but I'm happy just getting out and seeing different places in their best light, and photography gives me that chance to go exploring that I never would normally do.
I'm certainly no expert, and can't hold a candle to some of the wonderful photographers I've met over the years, but I enjoy the process and it gives me a small creative outlet away from the 9 to 5.
They say the kit is the least important part of photographing, and that's right, to a degree, but that doesn't mean I don't have my personal favourites.
I currently use a Nikon D850, LEE filters and Manfrotto or Three Legged Thing tripods with a Gitzo ball head.
I also use a battered old Lowepro bag I got off my uncle which is still going strong, a Peak Design strap, and a shuny bronze Three Legged Thing L-bracket, which was probably my best ever purchase.
My stance on processing
The photos you see here are the result of a certain amount of post processing. I think its utter madness that anyone wouldn't process their images. I'm no purist, and I've not met a single photographer worth their salt who doesn't process what comes straight out of the camera.
Landscape photography is an artistic endeavour, so I will enhance my images to reflect the feeling of the scene I was trying to capture. I will never heavily alter a scene (outside of occasional fun experimentation!) and will only remove small distracting elements if necessary.
