Andrew Hobbs - Photography

Photography has been a passion of mine since the day I first discovered the darkroom at school. I tend to follow my nose and take instinctive shots, and I prefer to be outside walking and shooting rather than being closeted in a studio.

I canít really say who I have been influenced by, but the photography of James Ravilious, John Davies, Tim Page, and Fay Godwin must be in there somewhere, along with many others. Since 2009 I have been a regular contributor to the Exmoor Magazine, covering a wide variety of activities, from events such as the Quantock Pony Sale to photographing pubs for their food section. I love this work as I'm never really sure what's coming next and it pushes me to move outside my comfort zone - an essential in ensuring you never grow stagnant in your work.

Like most modern photographers I now use a digital camera. The possibility to manipulate a digital image is infinite so it's important to me to keep my pictures as natural and untouched as possible.
