Andrew Fyfe, England Member Since July 2007 Artist Statement Andrew is a landscape photographer who fulfills his enjoyment of the outdoors by capturing scenes and moments that are both fleeting and elusive.
He likes to capture scenes at the extremes of the day where the results are most dramatic and variable, and the light is at its most beautiful. Andrew is particularly drawn to water scenes and is fascinated by the ever-changing skies.
Andrew finds landscape photography was a very satisfying activity, giving him a wider experience of the natural world around him. He is attracted to the art of landscape photography like a moth to a light, and looks forward to those magical moments when a beautiful scene unfolds in front of him.
His photography is documentary and representational in nature in that he presents a scene as it appears in reality, as viewed by Andrew through the lens.
Andrews work has been referred to as 'reserved and serene' in style and is known for its natural yet vibrant colours.
Andrew uses state of the art digital photographic equipment, but nevertheless takes a more traditional approach to his work by capturing a scene for print 'in camera' as he strives to minimise the amount of digital editing required.
The equipment that he currently utilises is an SLR digital camera with a high quality wide-angle lens and a telephoto lens; He makes use of Neutral Density graduated filters to achieve the correct exposures.
Andrew is keen that others are given the opportunity to enjoy the scenes that he has witnessed via the medium of the fine art print.
