Gallery for Sean Kelly

"Whenever I have moved house a new darkroom was always required up until now that is when I have gone totally digital. I started off using Pentaxs but changed to Nikons. I studied Photography at college as part of a Graphics BA and have always had a camera in my hand from then.To be really good at some aspect of Photography one has to devote time, thought and effort to that skill, and never stop looking at what others are doing in that discipline. I always see other work that I admire and wish I had their vision. The first photographer I remember was a spread by Don McCullin in the Sunday Times during the Vietnam War in about '67/8. He achieved real impact with just B&W images. The other early influence was John Cleare's 'Rockclimbers in Action in Snowdonia' also in B&W. I recall seeing some ariel photographs by Bradford Washburn taken on a large-format camera of the Matterhorn which displayed incredible detail of the mountain. Sam Haskins made an impact because he over exposed film and you first realised you could break the rules. At present I admire the work of Colin Prior for his Panoramic Landscapes on large format cameras & 'Cubby' & Greg Epperson for their action pictures. Recent success at the 'Landscape Photographer of the Year' Awards, and shortlisted at the KMFF. Also work published in the Sunday Times 'Spectrum'."
