Favourite Photographer
hmmm... do like the work of a few respected wildlife togs but don't always appreciate the BS or misdirection that goes with it.
Favourite Book
Authors is more appropriate as i read too much - Bateman, Brookmyre, Connelly, Connolly, Coben, Cornwell, more recently Alex Berenson
Favourite Record
'Emotion in motion' - Ric O'casek, 'No more words' - Berlin, 'Just a dream' - Nena... hmmmm, marginally obscure 80's perhaps
Favourite Film
Clint's 'spaghetti westerns' much to the better half's annoyance. Tenuous link - but also anything with Timothy Olyphant.
Favourite Word
Favourite Drink
thanks, a good cider or ale will do nicely. oh, or a good malt.
Favourite Food
Steak, Denise Richards
Favourite Location
hmmmm, Masai Mara or Bandhavgarh ?? a little nearer to home - Northumberland (normally time it to meet up with John from p.o.s)
Favourite Flower
pardon? Denise Richards.
Favourite Colour
logic says green or brown or anything 'animal friendly'
Favourite Gadget
only recently bought a (2nd hand and somewhat battered) camera upgrade so quite content thankyou. anti hand-held game devices / i-pod / i-tablet thingys as they seem to promote insular and anti-social behaviour
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.

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 poor images and ridiculous praise tends to bring out my worst side.

After accidentally becoming 'tutor' for our local 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 anti-photoshop but as some 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 it can cure clueless technique and turn bad images into masterpieces.

(I do have a number of tuition documents available FREE for those genuinely interested.)
