Hi. Welcome to SkySkapes. The photos here are a varied selection of hundreds I, like most digital owners, take most weeks. I have been taking photographs since the early 1960s. In the 1980s I won a photo competition in a national magazine and had a one man show in a local museum/gallery, speaking about it on local radio. I now feel like a beginner again with the complexities of a dSLR and processing. I joined a small camera club in order to learn digital and found myself on the committee and taking workshops teaching camera craft. Our club is affiliated to the Kent County Photographic Association.

I have been taking photographs since the early 1960s, learning how to develop film in the Boy's Brigade. Having owned several SLRs starting with the ubiquitous Zenith E. I moved to digital in a big way with a Nikon D90 having gone through a few early compacts. I have to admit that I felt like a new boy again as there is so much more to a dSLR. I still have my 35mm Pentax super A and Minolta and a Yashica twin lens 120 roll camera. "Night Light" was my first competition success winning me the Pentax in 1983. This was followed by a one man exhibition at a local museum/art galary where I showed a range of landscapes of Sussex downland and marshes. These photos are more skyscapes than landscapes as the downs and marshes are dominated by the sky. This is where I got the name SkySkape. As a member of a digital camera club I take photos of subjects I wouldn't otherwise take for the monthly comps. It can be both frustrating and stimulating to have set a subject. My interpretation of the subject and processing of the RAW file do not always meet with the judges approval.
