No Stock Photos Here

Did you know that all the images I use in my composit work are my own? Many photographic artists use numerous images to create just one piece of art.  Some artists like to use stock images, some prefer to combine stock and their own images while others choose to use only their own images.  My personal preference is to use only my own images.

I’ve tried using stock imagery but somehow I find the work I create no longer feels completely mine – even though the concept and the construction of the work would remain mine.

This new image, Tranquility, uses images I have photographed both at home and abroad.  Building up a large catalogue of images I’ve photographed is essential to my process.  The images below are the four that I used to create Tranquility shot over the last four years.

The short GIF below shows them being put together.
