In March 2008 I bought an entry level dslr camera and kit lenses with hopes of capturing whippets in full flight. I knew nothing about photography and the sales man assured me this camera would do the job. He knew nothing about whippets!
I soon found what I wanted was way beyond my little cameras abilities. I invested in some good lenses and while I got some reasonable portraity photos I couldn’t achieve the action shots I craved for.
I eventually got a camera that is designed for action photography and now I’ve got some photos I’m happy with.

I live in Victoria Australia in wine growing country, I probably should think about landscape photography too because it’s absolutely beautiful here. hmmmmm now there’s a thought.

I have a few other hobbies, leatherwork, (specialising in making whippet collars) whippets, Italian Greyhounds, other sighthounds, whippet and IG racing, Lure Coursing, art and graphite drawing.
