Thank you for taking the time to have a look at my portfolio. I hope you enjoy some of what you see. I've had a love for taking photos since I was a child, particularly landscapes and travel. I also have a reasonable skill in drawing, but not the patience for it since I was at school, so photography has taken over. I've avoided this hobby ever becoming professional, though I have sold a few prints over the years. To me, anything that becomes a 'job' is spoiled by the need to make money. As a hobby, it helps me dwell on the good things and the beauty in life...something we could all do with Smile

About

I won my first camera at the age of 9 in a drawing competition run by a local camera shop. It was a Kodak Instamatic. I bought my first SLR when I was 18 (from that same shop) and did some colour processing and printing at home. I changed to the 'digital darkroom' in 2001 some 20 years later. Photography took a whole new direction for me in 2016 when I qualified as a scuba diver. Water is such a different media to air and so much more challenging for the photographer! I have had to re-learn so much, not least un-learning to hold my breath when I squeeze the shutter release...if you do, you just float away from your subject because you buoyancy increases Grin
