Dry sclerophyll forests, wet sclerophyll forests, wet tropical rainforest subtropical rainforest, warm-temperate rainforest, cool-temperate rainforest, cloud forests and monsoon and dry rainforest are the primary woodland and forest types found in Australia. These are the broad categories that I have focussed on as a naturalist and a publisher for decades. As a photographer attempting to capture compelling images that drew attention to these ecosystems, I have long craved to set my creative soul to roam more freely. And, in more recent times, through the wizardry of the digital darkroom, I can now do just that. When viewed purely as a source of artistic design away from a more clinical natural history analysis, the aesthetic diversity of the many woodland and forest types found across Australia becomes an entirely different interpretative challenge. For me, these works have more to do with the way I feel emotionally in the moment, both at the point of capture and also during the digital creative desk-top phase. Through this latter process, I simply attempt to generate those feelings through design primarily ‘re-adjusting’ images using colour, line and texture via enhanced digital interpretations. This approach enables me to place emphasis where I want, much like a physical artist would with a paint brush.
