I’m Alan a hobbyist photographer based in Coventry, U.K.

I started getting into photography through long exposure (slow shutter) photography. The capture of lights and the different use of colour inspired me to achieve the same results. Working on light graffiti, fire poi and night time traffic I have had some success with my work being featured on the photography blog site phototuts+ and an exhibition.

I have been very fortunate to travel and see some great cities, Paris and New York both being highlights for me. This has given me the opportunity to have a cityscape portfolio featuring some of the world’s iconic buildings and monuments. The real treat for me personally has been to visit some of the greatest museums in the world. The feedback from this work has been really appreciated and this work culminated into a photography exhibition.

Kind regards

March 2011 – featured on photo tuts+ - "50 New Sensational Long Exposure Photos"
