Welcome to my portfolio

Its mostly landscapes and aircraft pics in here. I have had a go at most things over the years and occasionally still branch out, but those two are the only things I consistently upload.

About

I am a partially reconstructed geek, managing platform development and support teams for a living and taking the odd photo when time allows. I live near Oxford with my wife Elisabetta, son Jake and 2 daughters Jessica and Sophie.

Although I have had an SLR since I was about 8 (a Zenith B) and enjoyed taking pictures as a child, it fell by the wayside during my 20s and it was only after I met my wife in 2000 and started exploring more of the UK and her native Italy that I started to get the itch again.

I have been using a digital SLR since 2004 starting with a Pentax *istD followed by a K10D and a K20D. I switched to Canon in July 2010 with a 7D as I needed faster AF and frame rate for my airshow work. I now use a 5D MkIII and/or 7D MkII when I am out with the sole intention of taking pictures and a Canon M5 kit that I use when I am out with my family and photography is secondary.

Supplemented of course with the almost obligatory modern life addition of a smartphone.

Still learning, still trying to improve, still worried that I am actually getting worse!

Neil
