My name is Richard Farrington. I live on Vancouver Island in the picturesque Canadian Province of British Columbia.

I've been making pictures long enough, I think, to be dubbed a veteran. I prefer to shoot mostly natural landscapes, seascapes, mountain scenes and classic cars, although any interesting subject is worthy of my attention.

Twenty-five years ago, I formed a little business I called Vancouver Island Postcards, which is still going strong today. For ten years I marketed postcards and sold scenic images for tourism magazines and calendars, before selling the company.

Since I retired from the other workaday world a few years ago, I've delved back into photography with renewed gusto. These days I'm delighted to find myself surrounded by amazing, new technologies: digital SLR cameras with more gadgets and features than I'll ever use; lightning-fast computers with instant Internet connections to anywhere in the world; and mind-boggling photo-management computer programs like Photoshop which have given birth to digital art.

Partly learned, partly innate, I believe I am blessed with the simple ability to see a pretty picture. When I'm out there photographing, I follow my eyes. And if I'm patient enough and look long enough, they often lead me to that satisfying or even fruitful result.

I've amassed quite a large collection of good quality, high-resolution photographs. For the past few years, I've dedicated myself to creating digital art. That entails putting my original photos through a process of manipulation with the help of a myriad of computer programs, plugins, and filters.

With a little luck and a lot of trial and error, I've tried to transfer that same innate sense to the artistic digital compositions I make.

I hope you like them.

As always, if you have any comments or questions, please do let me know on my Contact page.
