Description The rolling mill at Ravenscraig Steel Mill in Motherwell, Scotland was closed in the mid 1980s but provides this powerful, industrial image. Ingots of red hot steel are accelerated back and forwards through the water-cooled rollers until they reach the thickness required for casings of consumer items such as washing machines or vehicle body panels. At a speed of approximately 60mph, the flattened sheet is captured by a large claw and rolled onto large cylinders.

I have been an avid photographer for 30 years working in a variety of media - 35mm monochrome, 35mm transparency and, over the last 10 years or so, digital. Although interested in a wide range of photographic subjects, most of my images stress bold shapes and highly saturated colours or, in the case of the monochrome work, high contrast effects. Recently, I have been experimenting with High Dynamic Range photography, a multi-exposure technique allowing the creation of very dramatic results.
