An amateur, but a long love of photography. A recent move to digital has seen the love ‘blossom’, and a greater enjoyment in the field. I will try most forms of photography, and gain both knowledge and fun out of the experimentation. Using a Nikon D300 and D7000, with a range of lenses, and filters. I hope you enjoy the views as much as I’ve enjoyed taking them.

  • Yes, they are lots of fun Lori! I like the 10-20 Sigma as it’s a good lens which does the job well. Thanks – my favourite surfing spot when in my youth!

  • well! won’t go in to that! yes, it was a great area as had the advantages of the two coasts easily accessible, and some of the best surfing spots around.
