Stuart is an award-winning Landscape, Portrait, Architecture, Long Exposure and Travel photographer who has recently become known for his giant sky astrophotography. With over 30 years studying visual perception and neuroscience, his approach to photography often has an experimental scientific methodology. He sets a goal for his artistic vision and then through repeated experiments he works out the best methods for achieving these outcomes (and he is not afraid to share the results and methods). However, you can always see a strong influence of his perception background in the work with the play of light, colour and contrast.
Many of his fine-art architectural images utilize unique, nonaccidental viewpoints where the camera is carefully positioned and angled to achieve a photograph of the landscape that might only be viewed by someone who happened to stop at that exact position and look up at just the right angle. You will also notice a symmetry in many of his images where various parts of the scene are balanced to achieve a sense of harm- ony with objects and the landscape.
His portrait work shows a love of the control of light that is achieved in studio photography and he brings the experimental methods there as well.
