I started taking pictures with an analogue Yashica SLR many years ago mainly for my own enjoyment. That and the fact that my brother worked in the local camera shop, so access to a decent camera and all the gear was that much easier. I used to spend hours developing and printing my own black and white pictures, then I moved on to colour slides, and then I bought my first small digital camera – with a whole three megapixels! This was followed by various other digital models up to a Panasonic bridge camera and then my first Nikon SLR, a D50. That was replaced fairly quickly with a better SLR.

Since moving up again to a really good digital SLR relatively recently things have really taken off, and judging by the reactions I get to my pictures I am getting the kind of results that other people like to look at (most of the time). Living where I do in south-west Germany amidst some beautiful landscape gives me plenty of opportunity to find suitable motifs. Not surprisingly, my subjects are mainly landscapes and wildlife and also macro pictures.

No comments??

My biggest order yet

When I look at the statistics I see a small but relatively steady trickle of sales over the years. This one, however, is the biggest I’ve had – and three copies of the same picture! I can only assume the location must have a special significance for the buyer. I could almost hazard a guess at who it could be, but I won’t because I’m not certain…
