I've always taken photos, right from the time I was bought a Kodak Box Brownie as a child. I've had various manual 35mm cameras over the years. In the last 12 years I’ve embraced digital and am fascinated by the possibilities and freedom that its gives. I find that carrying a camera ( most recently a Fuji x100f & Nikon D800) most days has given me a fresh enthusiasm. The discipline of attempting to take worthwhile and artistic shots whatever the weather has I think improved my photo taking, be it gritty urban or pastoral beauty.

 

Much of my work is has been taken in the city of Bristol, it’s a wonderfully photogenic place, there is a real mix of architecture and each area of the city be it Stokes Croft with its famous Street art or Clifton and the iconic Suspension Bridge has its own style and ambience. There always something going on here, especially in the summer such as the Balloon Fiesta, The Harbourside Festival & Upfest. There is a strong social conscience in many folks in the city so often you'll see a few street protests. Bristol has a maritime history, so in my collection are plenty of harbourside shots.

 

From March 2020 I've concentrated on chronicling the natural world in an around the Blaise Estate. Covid has curtailed any plans to travel this year so I've stayed put and have found the world of flowers, trees and insects a fascinating one. The changing of the seasons with particular emphasis on a small meadow called 'the Royals' has proved very rewarding photographically.

 

In May 2021 I decided to start coming back into the the city again and have been detailing life around the streets and recording changes, posters, street art and people. The proliferation of scooters has been fascinating if a little unnerving at times. Sadly businesses have closed and their lifeless interiors have proved interesting. Life still goes on and despite Covid, Brexit and the very real threat of climate change I've found much to see, much to be amused by & plenty of new art/sculture Many people still having fun & carrying on despite these deeply uncertain times

Roger Fry says:

I am totally inspired by Jeremy's work, not just because they are great images, but, as I am familiar with the locations he has made me aware that its not just the camera equipment that defines a great image. You have to 'see' the possibilities in the first place. I hope to raise my game towards Jeremy's levels !

With the Bristol shots, he is compiling a fantastic record of the city which will be a valuable resource in years to come. Considering Jeremy's memorable output, I would like to mention in particular his skill with capturing reflections, be it in glass or water, at which he is a master of creativity.
