About

I bought my first SLR-style camera in January 2005 and took the first pic posted on here 2 weeks after buying it. Since then, my knowledge has definitely increased, mainly due to tips, ideas and lots of help from my best mate (cheers Mick (shiny)), although sometimes I have good ideas but can't get them to come out how I want them too!! I suppose practice makes perfect.

My favourite photo's are aviation, animals (we have plenty of pets to choose from), landscapes and I quite enjoy macro. Living in the North East and so close to Northumberland gives me ideal opportunities to get out to some of the most beautiful landscapes in the country, although it doesn't happen very often. I also like to take live gig photo's when I get the chance, which isn't very often - this usually happens at the Marillion Fan Club convention weekends, where there is no restriction on the use of cameras and I have 3 nights to shoot my favourite band.

I am also a Scout Leader in Tynemouth (same group as shiny) so I get some ideal chances to get action shots when the Scouts are doing adventurous stuff.

During the 1st year I was taking photographs I changed my gear 3 times, totally bitten by the bug.

Camera History:
Fuji Finepix S5100
Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200
Canon EOS 350D

My other half (Motty69) has taken ownership of the KM A200 and I am trying to get her into taking pics. She enjoys it when we do get out and about, it is getting her out that is the hard part.

Comments and constructive criticism are always welcome.
