Angus Haywood currently lives beside the water of Portsmouth Harbour, Hampshire, in England. He grew up within the landscape of rural Dorset, around Sherborne. His interest in black & white film photography began in the 1980’s when given a Russian Zenit camera, and then continued to a Mamiya C220 6x6cm, and currently a Hasselblad 503CX 6×6 or occasionally a Mamiya 7ii 6×7. Films tend to be Ilford FP4 or PANF.
Influences have been the work of Fay Godwin, Michael Kenna, Bill Brandt, Cartier-Bresson, and many other contemporary photographers. Man Ray, Capa, Brassai, Vivian Maier, Kertesz, Ansel Adams, Doisneau, Edward and Brett Weston, Sebastiao Salgado, are all hold an interest.
He has been an airline pilot flying in Britain and Europe, returning to the UK after last finishing eight years in Saudi Arabia, operating throughout the Middle-East and into Africa.
He looks forward to further photographic and artwork projects or requests, travelling around Britain, Europe, and world continents.
