- Bought my first camera, Pentax Optio S5i, in 2005 soon after arriving in London on Tottenham St.
- After a year and a half I decided I was serious enough about photography so I purchased a Nikon D50 + 18-70mm Nikkor lens (online), later adding a 70-300mm Nikkor lens and SB800 speedlight.
- Then in 2010 it was time to upgrade to a Nikon D90 + 16-85mm, which is what I currently use.

I consider myself a hobbyist, although I have from time to time done the odd photo job here and there, sadly nothing inspiring i.e. nothing on this website.

Enjoy the portfolio and please feel free to provide any constructive critisism.

Angel Wings featured!

Line of Fire Featured

Thanks to the group Dawn and Dusk Light for featuring Line of Fire. Was driving home from holiday when I saw this fire. Drove past it, but stopped and turned back. So glad I did now :)

Featured Thanks

I’ve never publicly thanked the group admin for Trees for featuring my work Living Dead, so here a big THANK YOU for not only featuring it once but twice. / P.S. it looks like it could’ve been feature 5 times, but there are only 2 different dates for the 5 said features.

Portfolios

This is more of a genral query to everyone out there and for those of you who use RB as your portfolio. / I though I would limit my profile to 80 pics. I’ve been through others profiles with pages and pages of pics and I’m just not encourage to give as much attention to every pic as if there were fewer pages. Each page displays 20 pics when browsing someones art work, so I thought 80 …
