Photography has been an obsession since I was 13 years old and went off to Italy clutching my mother’s 1940s roll film camera. I’ve been fooling with computers since I bought an Amiga 1000 back in 1985. My first chunky pixelized images were digitized into that machine using a black and white CCTV camera. At last, with today’s software and hardware I feel that I can create the images I see in my mind’s eye. Visit my website at

    Totally awesome!!

  • Got to three airshows this year while over the pond and had a great time capturing lots of photo material to play with for the next few months and probably beyond! Glad you liked my first aircraft related image this year. Thanks very much JR for the confidence boosting comment. Cheers

    This is fabulous, I saw a spectacular show here also, hope you enjoyed your visit!!

  • I had an excellent five weeks over thank you Pauline. I got to see three airshows this year thanks mostly to Colin J Wiiliams who good naturedly drove me all over the south of England! They are a lot of fun and a great source of photographic material. Thanks also for the nice compliment, cheers.
