Photography – A Matter Of Instinct, Colin Steel


I have known Colin Steel for a while now. I first met him when he showed up for one of our workshops almost 2 years ago.’What a super name for a photographer!’ I remember telling him.

Colin is one of the nicest, laid back guys you’d meet. But when it comes to photography, Colin is one of the most curious and obsessive. And looking at his photographs today, it is quite amazing to see how far that curiosity and obsession has taken him.

A quote from Colin that I like very much “One of the nice things I have found about trying to shoot from subconscious instinct and response is that the photos are not at all narrow or constrained to particular subjects or themes, and whilst I find myself shooting much less people, my sense of it is that when I do its in a much more sensitive way.”

And a selection of photographs from Colin…
