All images are shot with a Nikon D700. In Lightroom I adjusted contrast, tones and cropping.

The hand portraits are all triple exposures.

    Just happened to come across your website, and as a huge fan of double (and triple) exposures, had to say that I absolutely LOVE your “We Are Nature” series. Very powerful imagery, and well executed; love the concept, too.

    Absolutely love your multiple exposure portraits with nature. I love seeing how artists portray the identification of man and nature and your photographs do it so exquisitely. I would love to go to an exhibition to see these (I would rather like them on my wall, actually, but my wall isn’t big enough, and my pocket certainly isn’t!). :)

    hey, just want to say how inspirational your images are! I am studying this technique in my photography course and came across your work whilst I was looking for artist links. I particularly love your colour images! I had planned on only using film but after seeing these im definitely trying out some digital! just hope my images will turn out half as good as these :)

    I teach high school art and we are offering digital photography for the first time. We just came across your double exposure portrait/nature series. They are breathtaking. We just did a short lesson on double exposure with our nikon d3000 cameras and my class was wondering if you could explain your process a little more for us. My students were fascinated by your work and we will add you as a photographer to follow for this class. Thank you for your time.

    Hi, I am studying A level photography and I just stumbled across your photography.I love the concept of layering images together and I do this through Photoshop but I was wondering if you could possibly give me a quick description on how to uses double exposures etc.
    Your work is truly fantastic and I have enjoyed looking at every photograph.

    Thank you.

    Hello Chris, Lovely work. Your double exposure of the girl in the hat really caught my eye and I am wondering how much for a print and how big the print would come.

    Many thanks,

    Josh
