I’m Simon and I’m a photographer, there, I said it.
My real interest in Photography started around 15 years ago when I bought my first SLR. Up until then I had always enjoyed taking photographs, but having interchangable lenses opened up a whole new world for me.

We took a walk around the local nature reserve, just got back home. Toes cold, ears frozen, and a few possibly good shots in the can. / I say possibly as Vicki bought me a Blackbird, Fly for Christmas. For those of you unfamiliar with them, the…
