AboutAfter 30 years of working in Civil Engineering all across the UK, I find that now, due to the current economic climate, I am in the position of being a youngish retiree based in SE England. Photography is my passion not my business and as such I get to pick and choose who I work with. I specialise in new model development and love to see the positive effects of taking a brand new model from their first shoot through the learning process of modelling and seeing their confidence grow and preparing them for the dog eat dog world of modelling.
I started photography using film around 25 years ago but became frustrated with waiting for the results to be processed. So when the first digital point and shoot cameras came along I soon bought one and although the quality was not good I loved the instant results and since then have owned a succession of cameras. My first digital SLR was a Canon 350D and have purchased a succession of Canon digital SLR cameras (and numerous lenses of course) since then, so that now I use the brilliant 5D MkII and see no reason to consider moving up to the 1D
My Main camera is a Canon EOS 5D MkII usually coupled with my favourite lens a Canon EF24-105mm 1:4L. I also have a Canon 40D for backup
I am also experienced at using Photoshop CS3 and I am now getting to grips with Adobe Lightroom and all my photos displayed here have to some greater or lesser extent been processed through this software.
