Thanks for taking the time to visit my portfolio.

Despite my own personal preferences or bias i will attempt to display a wide range of image subjects and styles so that hopefully there will be something to suit all (or most) tastes.

The vast majority of my 'wildlife' images will be set-ups with captive animals (except for Kenya and India images), a very humble and genuine hats off to those that can achieve their results with proper wildlife.

To date my comments on here, whilst generally well-meaning, have sometimes on reflection appeared a little harsh - local club frustrations perhaps spilling over a little.

My short-comings in this regard have been pointed out by a couple of members and thanks to them i shall now refrain from such, attempting to offer only positive comments or otherwise remain silent even in the face of poor images and ridiculous praise.

Apologies to those that have suffered inappropriate comments previously and thanks to those that have hopefully set me upon the right path.

Regards my own 'work' I am far more likely to learn and improve based on your seemingly harsh, but 100% genuine, knowledgeable critique than anything else - please feel free.

I have fortunate enough to experience some great photography training and some fabulous (though sadly perhaps one-off) photographic trips but generally speaking will try and get out and photograph almost anything.

After being shanghai'd by our local club, becoming their unofficial coach against my 'better judgement, i found that i enjoy helping others. My club role is now two-fold as it also encompasses being the person that attempts to get at least some of the membership off their backsides to get out and do some photography.

I do now run my own occasional photographic workshops (but this is NOT my full-time or main occupation) and as such is not run on a particularly commercial basis but rather it pays expenses incurred and allows me to meet similarly-interested people.

So far only bothered with a 'L' accreditation, upon wondering whether it may offer confidence to workshop attendees. May go for 'A' at some point but can't imagine ever bothering with 'F' as seems like a lot of bother for something i don't need.

I tend to do some form of photography every week, whether it be purely for myself, with other's looking to learn a little (which some would say is what i know), or on a commercial basis. Myself and partner Maxine have been very lucky in that some of our commercial work as taken us around the UK as well as The Bahamas and most recently Berlin.

The majority of my images are 'as was'. It's not that i am anti-photoshop if applied with reason and with skill, and generally to achieve something that could not be achieved in the camera. See for instance the likes of KT Allen - i simply do not possess the time let alone the skill and patience.

However whilst digital has opened up photography to the masses and in many ways is a positive, it has also spawned a host of bad / lazy 'photographers' who think that it can cure clueless technique and turn bad images into masterpieces.

I appreciate a little peace and quiet now and again, but I am definitely more a sociable photographer and, as well as trying to encourage outings with our local camera club, have also met with a number of epz members to offer a little one-to-one advice or simply share an experience. (I do have a number of tuition documents available FREE for those genuinely interested.)

If that photography experience culminates with a 'quick half' before home then even better.

regards phil
