Tim's interest in photography is long-standing - although after studying photography, he didn't pursue it. Life got in the way, as did a lack of space for equipment.
With the advent of high-quality digital equipment, his interest was rekindled, and he has returned to his passion for finding and sharing the natural beauty where he lives.
In his work he is particularly interested in light, pattern, and time - and how these three elements can be combined to produce images that sometimes reflect the world, sometimes evoke a new way of seeing the familiar and the known.
Sharon has only recently come to photography, taking it up in mid-2009.
She didn’t have any particular passion for flowers prior to that time, but soon developed a love of taking photos of flowers – up close. Sharon has also developed an interest in portraits and hopes to do more portrait work in the coming months.
In her work Sharon is particularly interested in exploring texture and colour, and tries to capture a unique view.
We both use digital SLRs almost exclusively.
