About

I was born on the Isle of Man and have lived and worked here ever since. My favourite pastimes are walking and being out and about in the fresh air and photography. The images on this site hopefully bring a little of the outdoors indoor and portray the best of my home land.

Please take a few moments to browse through the galleries. The majority of images are via digital SLR cameras but are not a result of combining multiple exposures (HDR). I use filters when required and attempt to get the shot right at the time of taking. I'm now also shooting with film using a Medium Format camera. All manual metering and focusing. Great fun.

With regards to composition and content, I try not to take 'Picture Postcard' shots - but aim to achieve something that goes beyond that style. I guess it's what many would call 'Fine Art' although I've never been a big fan of that tag. A combination of strong composition and quality light is what I look for in my images. Hopefully, some of the shots here get close to that.

In November of 2012 I was delighted to be enrolled as a Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society.

Colin Russell, LRPS.
