Photographer Galleries

Photographers were invited to join Fotobuddies for a number of reasons:

  • They are all photographers with whom I regularly take photographs – hence Fotobuddies!

I then compose the image to emphasise the narratives I have seen. I emphasise these are almost instantaneous visions of relationships and potential narratives. These are compositions that I used to…
