I am Patrick Blake, an experienced photographer.

I have worked in many types of photography - I love trying and doing new things.

I firmly believe that the principles of lighting and composition can be applied to most genres of photography.

Every photograph has to have a purpose. Sometimes that involves making a striking image to catch the eye, other times just a pleasing image that illustrates something.

With people it is usually catching a momentary expression or body movement that shows what that person is really like.

If you would like to know more about my work feel free to look at the video on my 'about' page. Or just look at the galleries and try to work out what the purpose of those shots was when I took them - they all had one!
