Simon Ball - Photography

East Woodhay Village Hall Simon Ball - Photography

My first camera was a Box Brownie, given to me by my Granny. I have been taking photographs for most of my life, mainly for my own pleasure and the enjoyment of producing images for my own use and to give to family members.

I started producing more images for sale to members of the public several years ago following requests to buy my work.

I have a great love of the wilder parts of our small but unique island and am happy to spend days alone just trying to interpret nature in all her moods.

I like to get the image correct in camera, as opposed to snapping away then having to spend a lot of time trying to save the image in the computer.

I love to try new ways to create an image in camera not manipulated in the computer. Recently I have been trying ICM (intentional camera movement) although this goes against all the old ideas of keeping the camera rock steady, but some very pleasing images can be made.  But I guess my main aim is to enjoy my photography and if what I produce pleases others, all the better.

All of my images are limited to 25 copies only, as the intention is to move on and create more images.

I do all my own printing to Giclee standard, mounting and framing, so the finished piece is 100% my own work.

I hope you enjoy my images as much as I enjoy producing them.
