About

Hi!
I am a corporate pharmacist working in the NHS in Glasgow. I have always loved wildlife and took my first big holiday in 1999 when I went to Antarctica ( only 10,000 approx people had visited by then- now 29,000 per year! I timed it right)
I used to take photos with huge lenses but due to neck and back injury have had to get rid of my lenses and convert to a very lightweight digital camera (panasonic Lumix FZ50). It is a nice camera but going from 600mm SLR to this has been frustrating so bear with me ! I have bought P/S elements but due to new job , I have not yet had time to learn how to use it!!!! I have visited India five times in the last 6 years to see wildlife and explore this vast and diverse country. I just love it and portraits of kids and animals have taken over from crawling about on the ground to get the perfect macro shot!
I eventually will scan my Antarctic photos as I really like some of them ( took 50 odd rolls of film in 10 days ) and will try to improve my digital photography ( I swore I would never desert wet film!)
