Photography by Nigel Pepper

I am a professional photographer living in Walton-on-the-Naze, a beautiful seaside town on the Essex Coast. I have two photographic rules: firstly I do not do weddings, and secondly, I do not obey photographic rules. Instead of worrying about positioning of horizon lines, foreground interest ( or foreground distraction as I call it ! ) and all the other constraints, I simply trust my own photographic eye. Always remember, if you adhere to the stock photographic rules you will stifle your own individuality.
