Hi,

Hopefully my images have improved since becoming a member in 2004 and that the trend continues!
This site is a great inspiration to get me to go out and take images in the first instance, but not only that, to try and keep improving to.

About

I am 41 years old and I am married to Kathryn. We have a little boy, Lewis who is 7 years old and a little girl, Emma who is 3.

I have always been interested in Art, drawing in particular, and was fairly good artistically at school. At home I was always drawing and won a colouring competition for a Bank when I was around 9 or 10 years old!

When I left school my attention turned to photography. I decided I was going to buy a whiz bang compact film camera but when I turned up at Jessops with my hard earned cash, (yes cash!), I was swayed into buying my first SLR, a Canon 1000FN. I joined a camera club, but just at this point my final school exams came along and with it career thoughts etc and I stopped my photography. I never really got going again until digital arrived and I was won over all over again. I bought myself an Olympus Mju 3Meg camera and really enjoyed it. What I craved was the control of an SLR and when a relation came around our house with a D70 he practically notched a sale for Nikon there and then!

Photography has opened my eyes to the world, I see much more than I used to on walks and visits which can only be a good thing.

Sometimes, my early dawn rises and late evenings is at loggerheads with the family - and so it can be difficult at times to get the opportunities for photography, but when they do come around, I aim to make the most of them!

My day job is as a Consultant/Contracter in Design/Project Engineering so photography is a great 'get away from it all' activity.

I have also built a Westfield Sports Car for my sins and I am a Season Ticket holder for Wolverhampton Wanderers - so you can see why I need to relax!!!
