Welcome to Bleak Manor Photography. This my personal photographer page where I post (what I hope are) interesting shots of my various trips and vacations. I try to avoid “crime scene” photographs that simply provide proof that I was at such-and-such location. I also try to avoid “post-card” shots as well. My preference is for more dramatic shots (read: crappy weather) that are a little off-beat.
I’ve been doing landscape photography off and on for over 30 years. And like many photographers, it has changed how I see the world. On the one hand it makes me more analytical when trying to determine what it is that appeals to me in a scene, and on the other, more appreciative of the less obvious aspects of beauty that can be found all around us. I’ve gone back to certain locations many times, and can always find something new.
My favourite locations are the Canadian Rockies and the southwest USA. No need to explain why, other than to say the vastness of both locales means that there is always something to see regardless of the weather.
And to all the smart-asses out there, it is Bleak Manor Photography, not Bleak Man or Photography.
