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 DSLR initially with the intent to take some photos on an our impending foreign holiday. Almost straight away I had a profound and all consuming connection with digital photography. Having Autism tunes me to all things technical and creative and digital photography offers me the obsessive cravings my ASD constantly demands of me. It's the perfect environment for me to express myself within. For me this 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 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 love of art when I was a child. I am country raised and love getting out and about in all weathers and ridiculous hours chasing that next special image.
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 what makes for an outstanding image. 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.
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.
