Hello and welcome,
My name is Aron Radford and I'm an East Anglian based landscape and coastal photographer. I took up digital photography back in 2017 after being diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome. Around the same time my partner brought me an older model Nikon D5000 DSLR initially with the intent to take some casual photos on an our impending foreign holiday. Almost straight away I had a profound and all consuming connection with digital photography. Having Autism and subsequently heightened attention to details digital photography offers me the perfect world to immerse and express myself in. For some with Aspergers it is a confusing and chaotic world I find myself living in and photography brings me inner peace and sustained comfort.
I am particularly drawn to landscapes and seascapes probably as my father used these two elements extensively within his oil paintings when I was a child. It has been said that my photos have a "Painterly" style to them which I also guess is due to my fathers influences and my own love of art when I was younger. I am country raised and love getting out to beautiful serene locations and trying to capture their special rural charm.
I'm always learning new things, and there is so much to learn that I suppose that never stops. My photography has two separate but equally important and enjoyable elements, "taking the shot" and "making the edit". I have discovered both parts are equally important to what contributes to create an outstanding image. I am not an old school "realist" photographer I am a "digital artist" who tries to create images people would love hanging on their wall and if that means a little artistic license in editing then so be it.
I would say if you include traveling, composition scouting and post processing each image I publish equates to approx 5 hours of my time. Each image is carefully planned, executed and crafted and so only the best results get published on this website. All my images are available for etch paper printing, canvas printing and licensing.
Thank you for stopping by and I would be very grateful if you would kindly follow me on all the normal social media channels (details on the social media page).
All the best, Aron.
