I've now been an EPZ member since September 2004, so about time for me to update the personal bit in case anyone out there is interested.

Started off, many years ago as a bit of a snapper with a variety of SLR cameras along the way. In 2004 I bought my first digital, a Fuji Finepix S7000, great camera but the digital delay and lack of interchangeable lenses drove me nuts! Eventually traded that in and purchased a Canon 10D from eBay, and the hobby has gradually grown into an obsession of costly proportions. Was very happy with the 10D until I tried out my mates 5D, and the outcome was inevitable really (cheers Ade!)…subsequently, have traded in the 10D and have upgraded all my lenses, filters etc etc…The kit I’ve got now is fabulous…thanks Canon.

Continuing to develop an eye for landscape work, but recently moved down to the Worcester area. Took this as an opportunity to join Smethwick Photographic Society and am broadening my interests through their specialist groups. Recently I have been doing an increasing amount of studio work, though I have yet to post this on EPZ. Watch this space, I will post them eventually.

Favourite photographer is Steve McCurry, though I have a huge and growing list of people whose work I regularly look at for ideas, inspiration and just to generally admire, for example, Joe Cornish, Charlie Waites, Lee Frost, to name but a few. Increasingly more and more EPZ members sites are making it onto my Favourites list as there are so many talented people contributing to this site.

My main photographic aims for this year are to get my LRPS (Now done, great) and to enter at least one of our club open competitions (Still to do!). Don’t expect to win, but it is a bit of a learning process about how to enter and take winning shots…

As ever, feel free to contact me via email: [email protected]

If anyone is around in the Bromsgrove, Worcester, Brum area and would like to meet up for a shoot, I would love to hear from you…
