photography

I am an amateur photographer.

Whilst I enjoy taking photos, have a reasonable idea of how to use my camera and usually get favourable results with it - there's still plenty for me to learn.

History and Kit
I started as a child taking snaps on film, firstly on 126 and later 35mm - inheriting my first film SLR just as digital photography began to take off. Careful research led me to my first compact digital - the excellent Canon A70 for which I had add on telephoto and wide convertor lenses. I wore out three A70s through thorough use!

To be using a proper digital SLR camera was always an ambition (what would now be called a bucket list tick); a step on that road came with a secondhand Canon 400D and borrowed EF-S 55-250mm lens. Frustrated by the 400D's poor low light capability (and rapidly reaching its limits) a good camera and lens were finally purchased in 2019 - yes still a Canon (I'm familiar with them and it's too late to change now). I'm sure my collection of lenses and other kit will continue to grow...

My Photographic Services
I am possibly willing to take photos for you, if I feel I have the kit etc needed - but even as an amateur there are costs to be covered if I would not otherwise be attending the location. If you wish to engage my services please
get in contact.

Scope of Use
If the photos are from an event where you were a participant (or a family member/friend of the participant), or you are from the organising club, or non-commercial governing body for that sport - feel free to download them, save them, print them out, use them on your club or personal website, post them to your personal facebook page, use them to promote your sport or event etc.

If you are from a commercial organisation (newspaper, magazine, website etc - i.e. for any use where you are making a profit) you will need to obtain specific permission from me to use a photo or set of photos. Depending upon your organisation and the scope, there may be a cost associated.

No photo offered here may be used to negatively promote any event, person, sport, activity or organisation.

Galleries
Listed below are online galleries of photos that I have taken, most recent first. Most are hosted externally to this site.

Online galleries do not necessarily contain the best quality copy available of each photo - contact me if there is a specific photo you are interested in.
