Welcome to my portfolio, photography is fun and a hobby. We take what we like and not act like sheep. Photography can be a powerful medium, highlighting so much of what is around us. Allowing others to experience our world behind the camera.

I am an obsessed amatuer photographer. My preferances are wildlife, landscapes,human form, black and white, candids and steam. Generally an all rounder, enjoying the art of photography. That might be on the top of a mountain in Scotland or on the sandbars of Lincolnshire. I still use film, Fuji being my preferred stock and until recently Agfa Scala. I do posses a digital Canon 20D, as yet only used sparingly. Photography is an adventure, enjoy the ride. About time I up dated the information, film has all but dissapeared and I have taken up the digital age. Purchased a Canon 5D and it has turned my photographic world upside down, a revolution ! No longer changing films mid way and all that I learnt as a film user put into practice with digital ! Now using the 20D and D400 with equal zest. Has made the whole photographic process so much easier, I now print my own work also. So much control, more to experiment with !
A lifelong Hammers supporter, rock music, Lynyrd Skynyrd fan amongst others. Greenpeace, World wide Fund for nature, member. Enjoy the photographic press it can win you prizes.

Thanks for your wishes about our break. It was full of incident and adventure, you will be seeing some of the results later when the 36 rolls return from Peak imaging.
