About

Toby GantMy love for photography started when I was young. I would look at our family photo albums over and over again. There was something incredible to me about freezing a moment in time. When I grew older I studied commercial photography under the late James Cox. I loved everything about it. The years I spent in the darkroom and the field were the best in that period of my life. The understanding of light combined with the ability to control how it is recorded is an incredible feeling. My favorite part of film and darkroom work was having the control to reproduce an image of a scene the way I saw it. After finishing school, I had no access to a darkroom. I grew frustrated with the inconsistent results from the local photo labs. Photography had lost its magic for me.  Then there was digital. This was a “game changer”. Through modern DSLRs and software, I was able to regain the control and the magic. My passion to create has never been stronger.

  13. Thanks for dropping in on my recently established blog. Love the photos of the waterfalls; they remind me that we have some fabulous waterfalls here in Wales (UK). So when I expand my blog beyond Cardiff I now have another idea of a direction to follow.

  14. I understand your dilemma Toby. I started with black and white film which gave me compete control from capture to print, but it was color transparency film for publication which gave me pause. I had no control over it after capture. With digital, we have it all!

  15. I just found your blog and am gobsmacked – such beautiful images. I get lost in them, or perhaps I find myself in them. Thank you so much for capturing the beauty of this planet and sharing with us all. You’ve a new “follower!”

  16. I’m really enjoying your photographs so much. The sheer variety and all the nuances of the waterfalls are fascinating. I think I’ll be back soon to explore some more. Lovely pictures.
