I wish I didn't know now what I never knew then Flashback...memories punish me once again Sometimes I remember all the pain that I have seen Sometimes I wonder what might have been ... The bittersweet taste of fate We can't outrun the past Destined to find an answer A strength I never lost (Anathema, Regret)
The Depth of Life propels the viewer into a personal journey of someone who is reaching out to freedom and dreams, making personal choices, safeguarding secrets and coming out of the comfort zone to face new challenges and have new experiences.
My main objective during the beginning stage of conceptualising was to create a series of images that were fundamental to what we experience in our lives. It is a series whereby almost everyone can relate to by being in that situation at some point in time. In this series, the concepts are carefully blended with levitation photography. The human mind sees things in slow-motion when it is undergoing stress, as though time is slowing down. This was carefully taken into account when creating the series.
I am greatly inspired by Brookeshaden, a photographer who specialises in creating surreal concepts by using the concept of levitation. Hence, I took on a challenge to experiment with a new technique for this series and to enhance the vision of the concepts.
The Depth of Life is a series of works created for the NOISE TAP Exhibition Showcase 2012.

Goodness! A DD! Thank you so much! I received a few comments about the hole in one of the pigeons and the shadow. I have taken that into account and re-edited the photograph. Thanks for noticing it
For this photo, I decided to reproduce a surrealistic shot originally created by the french photographer Philippe Ramette.
This was quite EPIC to shoot. - First I had to buy the wood and build the structure. - Then, I traveled a first time to a lake a few kilometers away from my house, and measured the depth of the water at various place, in order to build the feet of the structure with appropriate lengths. - After that, I cut the feet at home, and transported everything back to the lake. Believe me, this thing is heavy! My wife and I had a hard time installing it. - Shoot!
Thank you so much for the DD! Unbelievable! Also, thank you for all the great comments and favs, they are all VERY appreciated
Arriving at night, the conditions that greeted us on our first morning in Inverpolly/Assynt certainly weren't welcoming but there was plenty of drama. The prevalent rock type of the area is Torridonian sandstone, it formed more than a billion years ago.
full title; lots of fish in the sea, but dont let them run free".
something I did for my commercial task on school, just playing around with different elements, the fish are just fine and still alive so please don't make a fuzz about that. it's a lot of ideas behind this one, but again I want to see what others thing when they see it instead of explaining it.
i'm quite aware that the idea is not something new, but it was something i wanted to include in my book "curves in squares", it has been cropped this was due the scarf not being larger or else i would have included more of her body.
Magical conditions to be outdoors shooting the early ours of dawn as the mist rolls through the New England Tablelands in Cathedral Rock National Park, NSW Australia. I was fortunate enough to have the moon on my side which helped illuminate this scene with one single exposure and capture the star trails streaking through the sky above. I wasn't phased by this image last year when I took it, but I recently uploaded it on my Facebook profile and it had quite a positive response, so here it is and now available as a fine art print at www.drewhopperphotography.com
Hi! Here is my first photo from Sri Lanka! For those of you who do not know, I currently live in Sri Lanka, working as a volunteer with children. Last weekend we went to climb Adam's Peak, a high mountain. We climbed by night to see the sunrise in the morning, and it was amazing.
The mountain is known to be sacred. At the top of the mountain, you can find a footprint that is way too big to be by a human. According to the Buddhist people, the footprint belongs to Buddha, according to Hindu tradition, it is supposed to be Shiva's and according to Muslims and Christians, the footstep is Adam's.
This is one of the photos from the top! 5200 steps!
Hope you like! All feedback is highly appreciated!
