Thoughtful Jay !
For those that are interested & to answer most of the questions i've been asked, both present and past.....Here is a brief insight into my world.......!
I work Mon-Fri in a stressful office environment, weekends are my breath of fresh air and my time. Time for me to avoid the hustle and bustle of crowds, grab my gear and enjoy the wonders of mother nature and its creations. I do that quite obviously through the lens and enjoy the rest, peace and relaxation avoiding people at all costs (within reason).
An average day with camera & location would be between 8-12 hours, often sitting in a portable hide for the full duration. I visit various locations to ascertain what subjects are residing and then decide wether its worth the effort of setting up.
I have ideas of what subjects sit best on specific perches (sticks) to some !! Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't......but without trying one never knows.
I never bat an eyelid in spending a good 10 hours on the Saturday & another 10 hours on the Sunday, just sitting and waiting for the shot i'm after......It usually pays off in the end, wether it's a few hours or a few weeks........Patience I have in abundance !!
Relationship status - Single and loving it
(No woman in their right mind would put up with the disappearing act) as i've found out in the past .. Lol
I enjoy solitude, quite selfish on that front and don't like too many distractions whilst attempting to capture the image i'm after.
Close and true friends I can count on one hand, i'm very distrusting and wary of others...so as I say, when possible avoid large gatherings....Not my cup of tea !!
The love of my life to date : My 300mm f2.8
she's awesome !!
