About me

2018 to present retired enjoying my time behind the camera creating images that please me. 

Since 2010 until 2018 I worked as a freelance photographer, trying the different genres of photography, to find what I wanted to photograph. It did not take long to decide that landscape photography was what I enjoyed the most. 

I qualified as an engineer in the early 1970's and worked for local manufacturing companies until 2010.

During this time photography has been a hobby of mine, shooting transparency film when I could afford it, and then digital around 2005.




Gear

Starting with what I consider to be the most important is my iPad mini with CamRanger, Mark II Artist's Viewfinder app.

I photograph landscapes with digital cameras, Canon DSLR full frame and cropped sensor bodies. Ricoh Theta V for my 360 images and iPhone SE2020 for video.

Lenses for my Canon bodies range from 15mm to 200mm primes and zooms plus a 2X extender and 24mm tilt shift.

Accessories - Manfrotto tripods, tripod levelling base, Arca Swiss quick release clamp, L brackets and ballheads.

Filters - Polariser, ND1000, ND64, ND16, ND8, ND4, ND2, ND Soft Grads 0.6 and 0.9

I capture my SLR images in RAW format then catalogue in Adobe Lightroom.
Edit in DxO Optics Pro, Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop. 

Ricoh Theta V 360 images and video edited on Theta+ App on iPad and CyberLink Power Director.

Video capture on iPhone using the Moment app and edited using LumaFusion.
