Digging the work, James.
While I've been told to avoid photographing birds you seemed to have uplifted my spirit with your photograph of birds flocking in the shadows. The angle and space is well captured and the amount of pigeons are amazing.
Your photograph of the umbrella is also a favorite. I've been imaging this idea with my own umbrella but I love how you had a clear one and was able to capture the street lights. So beautiful. Inspiring.
Keep up the good work.
Thanks mate! I really appreciate the feedback! Cheers for sitting down and really having a look and giving me such a detailed opinion It's nice to see that the concepts in my head are being translated through my images.Sean,
Great work and layout for your captures.
It's great to see nice and warm photos for occasions such as engagements and weddings. You present these well and better than many I see.
The engagement shot where the girl is facing away and covering the whole guy's body and his arms around her; this is real beautiful and I feel a sense of wholeness when I look at it. The sun shining and background out of focus with the nice green grass flowing under. Love this.
The shot where the guy is ready for his wedding day, looking out the window and seems to be adjusting his shirt. So mysterious yet we see that he is looking forward to his big day. Great concept to a set of wedding photos.
Beautiful set of photos.
Keep it up.

Thank you for the detailed feedback racz. It's refreshing to hear some honest feedback about the negatives I have and I have to say you've summed up my self doubts fairly well. I really love my travel photos but I've never felt they strike you down with a feeling or moment. I've been trying this year to work with models and capture them in a type of way that complements my eye for the surroundings but it's been hard to find people willing. I'll take your advice with street a bit more and maybe spend a day or two exploring around devoting it to people on the street.Shiri,
It's refreshing to see work captured out in Japan.
The travel perspectives you have on your site give a sense of an overhead view and gleams the viewer into the unknown world you've stepped upon. It keeps us a float and makes me curious on where these where shot. Love the concept of these.
While I feel a great aesthetic with all your images I noticed there aren't too many that have a powerful strike to them. I'd like to see some more daring images that may show us a different side of things. Ever try out street photography and maybe capture strangers? I feel you'd be good at it.
There's one set of images that really struck me in a beautiful sense; on your blog post you have a series titled "Blue". I don't know what it is but these photos really give a sense that travel will allow you to see many different colors and values. I love the girl's hair and how it reflects upon the ground, lights, water, and grass. There's too many good meshes with this one girl and her surroundings. This would be a great set of images to present as a story, I feel. Print these out and they can capture great emotion when viewed in a gallery of some sort.
Keep it up.
