My names Ollie and i live in north yorks and i am now a full time carer.
Photography happened by pure chance ,i was taught by a teacher at school and others when i was young, how to take photos and given some developing skills as well,however after having a camera destroyed ,i gave up.
That was until just over a year ago a friend gave me a 2 meg camera ,no manual.I just played around with it and i was hooked .I have had so much fun i wish i had never stopped over 20 years ago .
I am amazed by the talent on this site ,plus how many folk who live near me .
I have a love for land/seascapes also i do like old buildings and i would love to take a decent portrait shot ,on the down side i find some software quite frustrating ,i guess i am very heavy handed, and i take ages to add even a bit of contrast to a pic as i nearly always make a pigs ear of it!!!!!! .Anyway thats a bit about me and i am here to learn ,oh and i care nothing about how many clicks i get ,i have been on some sites and i had to learn about that the hard way.
