Clayhaus Photography is Jeff Clay.
I’ve always loved the twin pursuits of exploring and discovery, whether they are in the natural or built landscapes. Both are now closely linked to my photographic processes and creations. In the field, I control the subject matter and composition and seek with my eyes and cameras the photograph to take. Working later, with my computer, I make the image my imagination wills. The camera and the computer, field and office, exploration and discovery, all are the yin and yang of my work guided by skill, created by artistic intent.
Reflecting different personal interests, my photographic techniques and subjects are also diverse. Gothic cathedrals, dusty mediaeval villages, modern architecture, abstract patterns of light and shadow, remote desert valleys, these and more are all parts of the varied canvas I photograph. I also utilize different photographic techniques and tools including infrared photography, exposure blending, and the panorama format.
