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.
Other than very occasionally attempting to offer some guidance to other members, I generally keep myself to myself now as poor images and ridiculous praise tends to bring out my worst side.
After accidentally becoming 'tutor' for our local club, I 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.
I am not anti-photoshop but as some of my 'students' wish to learn photography and not manipulation I tend to bias my tuition to the principle of getting it right in the camera
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 do have a number of tuition documents available FREE for those genuinely interested.)
