I’m a retired engineer and self taught photographer from Cheltenham in Gloucestershire, England. Welcome to my world. It is said that a picture paints a thousand words, so I’ll just let these images tell my story so far. It’s a colourful place consisting of beautiful and magical locations - of musicians with enormous talents and drive - of personal memories and wonderfully happy days.
All my life, I’ve enjoyed the natural world around me and listening to all types of music. Having a passion for photography allows me to indulge my pleasures to the full. Whatever the situation, I can rely on my Canon 5D Mk III cameras to produce good shots under any conditions and I never go anywhere without my Canon G5 X compact camera. I’ve seen a lot of changes in photography over the years, from 35mm film and darkroom processing to modern day digital cameras and developing technologies. I’ve never had so much fun embracing change. The computer and software applications that we now use, are tools which are as important as the camera that takes the picture.
Now that I am retired, I’m hoping that more time will be available to travel, in order to extend my range of locations and subjects. I also plan to undertake new ideas and learn new techniques. I'm looking forward to the challenges ahead. You'll find me on Facebook, Flickr and Instagram.
