Looking for some photographic inspiration? Look no further than
This month, our featured photographer is APC member, Steve Raynor.
Steve has been a member of the Ajax Photography Club since 2016.
How would you describe your photography style?
As yet I haven’t settled on any particular style or type of photography and tend to stay on the
eclectic side, looking for interesting compositions as and when I see them.
I lean towards monotone and look for high contrast, angles and compositions.
Which photographer is your biggest inspiration?
One of my favorite photographers is Michael Kenna who’s known for fine art minimal monotone landscape images. In addition, David Yarrow, fine art wild life photographer. Anybody interested in photographer bios and bodies of work should visit the YouTube “The Art of Photography” hosted by Ted Forbes
How long have you been interested in photography?
I’ve been interested in photography, and have had a camera of some sort for the past 30 years or more, mainly used for holiday snaps etc. Only within the last six years with approaching retirement have I considered taking photography seriously, with a purchase of an entry level camera and a couple of evening classes at Durham College.
What was your first camera?
My first camera with any serious functionality was a Sony a3000 purchased six years ago and passed on when I upgraded to a Fujifilm XT2 two years ago.
What is your dream photo trip?
Four years ago, on a trip bask to the UK I had a stop over in Iceland for 2 days, and took in some local sights. I would like to revisit and spend a week traveling the island. Also, Japan would be on my bucket list.
