Gerhardt .

My motto is “Single light source essential”. I have said it before and I will say it again, how do we define ourselves as an artist if we do not endeavour to work towards something original…it is difficult these days as so much has already been done. The Australian landscape is so unique yet the light is even more unique. I have travelled the world yet I have yet to find the drama that unfolds here every day. I know I can create light in a studio and well, so can everyone else…Leave the studio and accept the mercy of the elements, forego all control except your own ability to control your camera…Lets just say that I prefer not to control the light I can create but to control the natural light that can only be harnessed through understanding its many nuances.

My creation is one with order, one with harmony and balance. This order is achieved through the balance of light and shadow, fluidity of the tones, the expression of the light and in particular the model integrated with the environment which is integral to the overall perspective. It is the interaction of the light and model with the landscape that influences the destiny of the end results.

I invite you to share this quest with me.

I am a fine art nude photographer working strictly in the capacity of black and white (B&W) photography. My subject is the beauty of the nude physique set in and around the Australian bush and beach.
