About

philhomer

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.)

    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.
    Book
    Authors is more appropriate as i read too much - Bateman, Brookmyre, Connelly, Connolly, Coben, Cornwell, more recently Alex Berenson
    Record
    'Emotion in motion' - Ric O'casek, 'No more words' - Berlin, 'Just a dream' - Nena... hmmmm, marginally obscure 80's perhaps
    Film
    Clint's 'spaghetti westerns' much to the better half's annoyance. Tenuous link - but also anything with Timothy Olyphant.
    Word
    thankyou
    Drink
    thanks, a good cider or ale will do nicely. oh, or a good malt.
    Food
    Steak, Denise Richards
    Location
    hmmmm, Masai Mara or Bandhavgarh ?? a little nearer to home - Northumberland (normally time it to meet up with John from p.o.s)
    Flower
    pardon? Denise Richards.
    Colour
    logic says green or brown or anything 'animal friendly'
    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
