Vintage Photography

The Orotone

Hand-crafted on glass the orotone elevates the traditional two-dimensional image to a higher plane. The beautiful depth is intensified by the iridescent radiance of the orotone transforming the rendered subject into something quite ethereal. 

Original Handcrafted Images

My work over the past few years has been focused on capturing the beauty that exists in the ordinary around us. Using traditional photographic methods has allowed me to realise my vision as a photographer and in a way, become the driving force for my work.

The real craft of photography is very much hands-on. Taking a week to create a single image is not time wasted, but something that reinforces the true value of the beauty that surrounds us all.
