I'M ROY FRASER AND I'M A LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHER FROM POOLE IN THE SOUTH OF ENGLAND COUNTY OF DORSET.
I first became aware of photography when I was at school. I was watching a school rugby match when I noticed an older boy taking pictures on the touch line with a Praktica 35mm film camera. My interest was piqued and I asked him a few questions and decided there and then that I wanted a similar camera myself! At this time we were living in Singapore and twice a year I was able to go back to Singapore in the school holidays. You can buy cameras very cheaply in Singapore so I was able to get my parents to purchase one for me. On returning to school I began shooting sports events and other activities and even had the school build a darkroom for other boys to use. After school I went straight into my new life of a professional photographer. I am eternally grateful to that boy on the touchline for inspiring me to become a photographer! I've been a professional photographer now for over 50 years. In the last 4 years I have taken a step back from running my very successful large school photography business, Fraser Portraits Ltd, to take time out to concentrate on my new vocation... landscape photography.
Fraser Portraits, www.fraserportraits.com , involves working with a team of over 20 staff photographers and 10 admin/ lab staff. Landscape photography allows me to be on my own in the environment in all weathers... bliss!!
My aim is to find minimalist and abstract images wherever possible when I'm out in the landscape. I want to provide clients with imagery that makes them stop and think about the composition by looking at it with a clear view. Too often I've seen colour landscape photographs where over saturated colour drowns out the composition itself. Stripping out colour leaves the picture more able to be viewed and appreciated... at least I think so! In January 2020 I went on a 'trip of a lifetime' to Japan's northern most island of Hokkaido. My book is currently available on this site and here is a little more information about it... See me show the book here>> Hokkaido book
I tend to be drawn into the wilder aspects of the landscapes in the harshest of conditions. I've always looked forward to working in misty, foggy, wet, cold, snowing weather conditions as they seem to make the landscape in front of me look far more dramatic. I have no idea why but I can be found by the coast in a storm with a smile! My real preference is to capture coastal seascapes and I'm happy as long as water can feature in my images. (Rivers and puddles count too!)
I always prefer to be out shooting rather than sat in front of my PC, and
have been known to be out shooting on hot, sunny and blue sky days! My
preference today is to see all the locations I visit in black and white as I
feel they can convey more of the structure and design of the composition. Too
often I've found colour fills in the gaps and doesn't allow the landscape to
When I first started out in photography as a press photographer I was
shooting exclusively in black and white. After all these years it now seems
right that I return to this medium for my landscape work!
