GrinHi everyone, i really got into photography when i bought a digital camera last year. I found this site through a magazine, i think it is a great site! I'm still learning and hope this site will help me. My passion is wildlife and the countryside, i am always in the local park with my camera. My aim on this site is to get a decent shot of a Kingfisher to upload on EPZ and to receive a E.C or a H.C. !!!
Profile pic by Pegon, i'm now carrying more gear than the BBC outside broadcast crew.

On the 7th of March 2005 a new member, Ken Bnnister joined ePHOTOzine,
In a short time of taking photos (started in 2004!) he has reached a level of the ePHOTOzine Master of tens of clicks for each and every shot submitted.

Among his 198 photos there are only 5 photos of people, the rest are the pictures of the wild world.
Keith found out his way in the art and since than has constantly been improving his skills.

Today the photographer is an acknowledged Master of pictures of birds, flowers and animals where each photo is unique and unrepeated.

Do you want to know why Keith is that good?
He knows where he wants to be. Just that simple!

"My aim on this site", he says, "is to upload a shot that gets over 100 votes and to receive a E.C or a H.C. !!!"

Only two clicks separate him from his dream: on the 25 of July his photo Aglais Urticae received 98 clicks!!!

Thank you Keith for your PF full of unforgettable small wonders!
