Welcome to my little corner of ephotozine where I hope you may find something that pleases the eye and appeals to the senses.
Photography is my passion often fired by some of the most inspirational portfolios on this site. I never fail to find beauty and interest in every day things and places and enjoy most genres of photography. I truly believe that we are never too old to learn or try something new and will have a go at most things. I value critique on my work and greatly appreciate any comments.
Many thanks for looking.

About Me

I live on the English Riviera in South Devon, England. I am originally from Sutton Coldfield in the West Midlands and have spent the majority of my working life in the music business. I retired a few years ago and took up photography to replace the creative gap left by my retirement.
Since joining EPZ in 2007 I have taken my hobby a lot more seriously and invested in a Digital SLR and some useful lenses. Some of the excellent work and portfolios on this site truly inspired me to raise the bar and try a lot harder to become a better photographer. I have received a great deal of help, knowledge and constructive criticism from fellow members which is truly appreciated. I will try my hand at many subjects but tend to favour macro, floral, and most recently, portraiture which I am developing a keen interest in. I am an active member of a photographic society and am currently working towards a distinction with the R.P.S which I am hoping to gain in the near future.

Canon EOS 40D. DSLR
