Michael Paynton Member Since January 2010 Artist Statement Photographing landscapes all over Britain gives me the opportunity to find and document the beauty, wilderness and magical formations which still surround us. Through my photographs I aim to capture a sense of remoteness and the variety of moods that different light can convey. I tend to take most of my photographs early or late in the day as it is easier to capture images without any human interruptions. I find that the most challenging aspect of landscape photography is trying to capture on film what I see in “my minds eye”. It is incredibly satisfying when I manage to get it right.
