Black and white is the medium for some of the most classic photography images around. In some ways its the most pure form of photography; relying only on tone and form. By removing the distraction of colour, the eye is focussed purely on the shapes in front of us and the composition selected by the photographer.

I try to use black and white nature photography to show wildlife subjects in a new, less mainstream way. In the right light, landscapes come to life when distilled to their most pure elements of light and shade.
