For many, Macro is one of those 'Marmite' genres in photography where you either love or hate it but, beyond the patience and technical skills required, many people do appreciate close-up photography with a creative edge.

We stumbled across Richard Lewis' very impressive body of macro images on Flickr back in the autumn of 2015 and recorded this conversation over a coffee a few months later. nature and Landscape photography is a big passion for Richard when he's not working on shifts in his day job in Newport. And it shows.

We highly recommend following his regular macro updates on Flickr (link below). And his landscape images aren't too shabby either!
