Welcome to the Budge Images. Here you'll find a few photographs that hopefully may provide an introduction to my work. It's about revealing beauty (or ugliness for that matter) rather than creating it, about opening a small window on a moment and letting others peer through.
Palettes from varied places
Not those shades of grey
Highlands and uplands. Spring 2014
Recent wanders with a camera. Malta 2014
Travels with a camera, a selection of images from Canada to the Persian Gulf.
Light and shade, movement and rest. A few attempts at grasping time's arrow.
The tartness of pomegranate seeds and the subtle perfume of saffron, tarragon, dill and fenugreek
Journeys through the lens shared by subject and photographer
The most intimate relationship between attraction and life
line & curve
Amateurs and models, shapes and textures
I have been chasing light since I was 14 years old and very occasionally catch some.
For me photography is a way of exploring and hopefully seeing. Images are kept as pure as possible, each an attempt at capturing a moment, texture or note.
I prioritize all projects and commissions based on how challenging and/or interesting they are. I'll always choose a fascinating assignment for free over something routine but lucrative.
for Jila Dana-Haeri
The food of Iran is a riot of tastes and aroma, and is one of the great - but least known - cuisines of the world. Images from the latest book by Jila Dana-Haeri, a unique guide to quintessential Persian cooking. A showcase for the diversity of Iranian regional cooking, from the sweet and sour flavours of the Northern Caspian Coast to the spicy and aromatic tastes of the South and the Persian Gulf.
