Thanks for taking the time to visit my "portfolio"

Despite my own personal preferences or bias i will attempt to display a wide range of image subjects and styles so that hopefully there will be something to suit all (or most) tastes.

I detest misleading photographs so please be advised that the vast majority of my 'wildlife' images will be set-ups with captive animals (except for Kenya and India images), a very humble and genuine hats off to those that can achieve their results with proper wildlife.


Other than very occasionally attempting to offer some guidance to other members, I generally keep myself to myself now as the combination of poor images and sycophantic praise tends to bring out my worst side.

After accidentally becoming 'tutor' at our local camera club, I now run my own occasional photographic workshops (but this is NOT my full-time or main occupation) and as such is not run on a particularly commercial basis but rather it pays expenses incurred and allows me to meet similarly-interested people.

I am not entirely anti-photoshop but as most of my 'students' wish to learn photography and not manipulation I tend to bias my tuition to the principle of getting it right in the camera

Whilst digital has opened up photography to the masses and in many ways is a positive, it has also spawned a host of bad / lazy 'photographers' who think that manipulation can cure clueless technique and turn bad images into masterpieces.
