I first got intrigued by daytime long exposure photography back in Summer 2010 after seeing many great examples such as the amazing waterscapes by Joel Tjintjelaar and especially the inspiring urban photography from St. Petersburg by Alexey Titarenko (most of which was done some 20 years ago – well before the advent of digital photography). In September of that year, as a birthday present to myself, I got a B+W ND1000 filter. The 10-stop light reduction allows achieving exposures that last several minutes even in the middle of the day and adds an extra dimension to the photos. For the last 1.5 years the filter had been an essential tool in my camera bag during my day trips around northern England as well as my summer holiday in Spain. I have discovered that long exposure photography can look great in a variety of situations, be it to ‘calm down’ the restless North Sea or capture the movement of the swarming Sunday shoppers in Leeds city centre – and I hope my collection of photos will show this.

I am an Electronic Engineering PhD student at the University of Leeds and spend the majority of my scarce free time travelling around Northern England with my camera. I am originally from Lithuania and came to Leeds to do a university degree in 2005. In 2006, after getting a DSLR, I really got into photography and got completely hooked since then, focusing mainly on landscape photography. You can find more of my work at my website and my flickr account. Several of my photos are also available as prints at RedBubble.
