Are you new to photography? Do you struggle to make sharp images? or maybe you just want to improve your photography skills?
You are in the right place. I am here to help!
I’ve been living and breathing photography for over 10 years now and want to share my passion, enthusiasm and knowledge with you.
My speciality is landscape, nature and macro photography. I regularly share my experiences and adventures in my blog, feel free to grab a cup and take a look.
How It All Began
My interest in photography began at an early age. My farther was a member of the local camera club and owned a Pentax camera. It was all film in those days and very much different to how most of us practice the craft in recent years.
I was fascinated yet confused by all the knobs, dials and buttons found on the camera. In reality I really had not got a clue what they all did and relied on my father to dial in the correct setting for me to hold the camera and just press the shutter button.
The majority of my images were either of the floor or even the sky however my speciality was portraiture where I would at best cut off the tops of my subjects head.
I was young and my photographs were really just snapshots. A capture of a moment in time and a record of a childhood memory.
The Photography Bug
I caught the photography bug whilst employed at an engineering company. My role found me project managing the development and implementation of new corporate and product branding. As part of the project I needed a set of photographs to feature in a new corporate brochure and I decided to have a go at making the images myself. I setup my scene and clicked away in the cameras automatic mode. A few moments later I had my first images and had also caught the photography bug in the process!
Teaching myself how to see light has been the biggest improvement to my photography
I live in the Black Country around 12 miles south of Birmingham with my beautiful wife Helen and Rosie our Labrador Retriever.
When I am not making photographs I love to travel. My favourite places I have visited include Pisa and Rome in Italy, Dubai in the Middle East and Croatia which played a huge role in the setting of Game of Thrones.
To relax I love spending time with my family, going to the movies and eating out. I don’t think you can beat a nice pint of real ale and chicken Jalfrezi !
Bring Your Wall To Life
I love printing my work and have a selection of my photographs available as fine art prints. Have a look I am sure there is one that would look great hanging on your wall.
I also produce a very popular landscape and nature calendar each year featuring images from the past 12 months.
