Taken at New Miller Dam in Wakefield West Yorkshire.

I’m a semi pro photographer, happily married to Karen, born and raised in the West Midlands, England, but now living in West Yorkshire. I take many and varied images and enjoy the freedom that Photoshop and it’s like bring to the profession.

I would encourage anyone with an eye for a good composition to take the plunge and give this wonderful medium of digital photography a go.

    Beautiful. What kind of camera do you use, if you don’t mind sharing?

  • Hi Sheryl, sorry for late response, been busy helping to set up a new group and all that ROFL

    I use Olympus DSLR’s E500’s and standard lenses, I have not sold enough prints to buy better lenses lol. I also use CS5 in the main for editing with Perfect resize 7 my preferred image enlarger.
