Welcome to my photography web site. I am a long standing photography hobbyist and I spend a great deal of time with my camera. Like most people I spent many years with a point and shoot camera without really knowing a great deal other than to keep pressing the shutter button. About 2014 I took the plunge and bought my first DSLR camera and started on the long journey learning how to get the best from it.

I take photos of a wide range of subjects : birds, deer and any other form of wildlife that comes in front of the camera, flowers, street scenes and landscapes. You will see a lot of images here and I hope you enjoy them and that some visitors here may be inspired by them to improve their photography skills.

If anyone does need any help with technique, composition, understanding the hows and whys of DSLR photography then take a look at my Facebook page "DSLR Photo Advice Group". This page offers advice from the basis of being "in the field". Practicality is the theme although some theory is unavoidable if people are to understand how to take good photos. The theory is kept to a minimum. People submit photos they are unhappy with and I analyse the photos and the techniques and camera and lens settings used to obtain them then provide advice to enable a much better result to be obtained next time. I also respond to requests to explain basic and advanced techniques that people would like to learn.

I also use Photoshop and Lightroom when necessary. Some images don't always come out perfectly as much as one might try and therefore from time to time they need a bit of assistance from these programmes. The secret is to keep any adjustments to a minimum. Overdoing it can easily create more problems than are solved.
