i am an amateur photographer from Bondi Beach Australia, who originally hailed from Kent Canterbury UK.
i love nothing more than spending time with my beautiful fiancée, and if i have my camera with me, well, that’s just about as good as it gets!! she has a great photographic eye, but as yet has not immersed herself in this consuming passion, watch this space………….
I love the opportunities that photography provides for self expression.
That it provides the chance for an ordinary man to feel like an artist, painter or poet, and the spectacles that nature presents can be so easily captured and presented for others to see and appreciate.
That it stirs an emotion in a complete stranger who suddenly feels connected to the image that they see, so much so they express this in words of praise for what they have seen, a common bond in a world connected by a common interest, to witness and capture beautiful moments and freeze them.
Photo ‘en plein air’ is a wonderful and exciting medium to work through and keeps me in constant appreciation for the world that exists around me!!
And for the record, i like to write a poem or two.
A Note To Self: Be wary of ‘photographers’ charging big dollars for pics taken with something like a D70………..
