From the time he picked up a 35mm SLR camera as a twelve year old Richard Hume has been hooked on photography. Hume is a New Zealand fine art photographer specialising in medium format panoramic photography. Hume says “The panoramic format is actually very close to our own (human) field of vision so it is a very natural viewing platform for us. Every element that goes into these images is the very best quality and I strive for absolute excellence in every photograph. Nothing beats standing before a huge panoramic print and just absorbing the stunning colour saturation and grain quality that can only be achieved through large format photography”.
