I hope you enjoy my Redbubble portfolio. I certainly have derived great delight from taking the photographs, from the experiences they capture and from looking at them over and over again, as well as learning from the many inspirational artists in Redbubble.

Thank you to the members of the Redbubble community who have shown their appreciation of my work and offered their support and encouragement through their comments, adding photos to their favourites, featuring my photos and for buying them.

Many of my photos make very special, distinctive and quite spectacular cards, which can be used for any occasion. The cards I have had printed by Redbubble have been appreciated as especially meaningful and given a special place, by my friends and loved ones who received them.

I love experiencing diverse cultures, particularly non-Western cultures and those of the people in the majority world.

I am retired and merely an enthusiastic amateur photographer but appreciate the artistry and creativity that can come from working with the camera. During the 1960s and 1970s I used a Minolta SRT101 and SRT303 film camera with a range of Cokin filters, and then I discovered the wonder of auto focus with a Minolta 9000 film camera. (Note: after 20 years in a cupboard, I have resurrected my Cokin filters to incorporate once again into my photography… the filters, not me, have been in the cupboard!!)

Since my Minolta days, I have used a range of digital cameras (the first of these being a Kodak camera that could hold 8 photos! and later an Olympus Camedia C-750 Ultra Zoom 6.3-63mm lens) before acquiring a Canon EOS 500 with a Canon 18-200mm lens and now… a Canon EOS 70D with a Tamron 16-300mm lens, a Sigma 10-20mm wide angle lens and a Tamron 60mm f2 macro lens. This is an awesome camera, I rarely take it off “manual” mode and take many photos as RAW files.

I have heard people being critical of those who take many photos “They are so busy clicking that they don’t see what is around them.” My experience is quite the contrary. I do see what is around me, and because my photography is finely honing my observation skills, I see what I would not otherwise see, often minute detail or a distinctive perspective on the ordinary that means nothing to others or which they do not see, but for me holds great beauty and wonder. And seeing it, it arouses my curiosity, inviting me to create with it and then to capture my creation for myself and others to enjoy and savour.

Most of my photos are “as is”, that is, I attempt to capture my final product in the camera, not on a computer. I will take many shots of the one subject, using a range of aperture, speed and ISO settings (up to 12,800 ISO at night) in order to get the image I want. Having said that, I am enjoying tentatively dabbling into the world of RAW files and Photoshop.
