Photography

Once upon a time...
I dreamed of being the next Don McCullin (see here for a little taster, and use the next link on that page to see a few more photos if you are not familiar with his work). Then reality kicked in. Today, I'd probably settle for being the next Ansel Adams (this is a wonderful site).
And as much as I love London, you can't beat a day (or more) out in wide open places for sloughing off the stress. Silence, apart from the sound of the wind whipping into you. Space to think. Or just let your mind freewheel. So it's no surprise that a lot of the pictures here are big moody landscapes.
I don't do weddings. I only shoot things that appeal to me. I can go out with a camera and, if the inspiration isn't there, taking nothing all day. Or, if my eye is in a groove, I can easily take more than a hundred photos in a day.

A word for the anoraks...
I went digital almost two years ago. So most of my recent work has been shot on a Canon EOS 350D. The two lenses getting the most use are a Tamron AF 18-200m f/3.5-6.3 XR Di II, which is an excellent all-rounder, and a recently-acquired Canon EF 70-300m f/4-5.6 IS USM. I'm still getting to grips with the Canon zoom, but the extra weight (and cost) of the image stabilisation seems to be well worth it.
Until early 2005, almost everything was shot on a Canon A1. An ageing warhorse that gave me years of loyal service. If I had to choose my best friend in the world it might well be one of those Canon bodies <G>...
The A1 was used with an assortment of lenses from 24mm to 500mm. When I go out walking for the day, the rucksack often contains more camera gear than walking gear, so the lightness of the 350D is a distinct benefit, though I'm not sure it would be quite as robust as the A1.
Most of the pictures on here have, on the whole, not had much done to them in Photoshop. Not because I'm such a purist that I disapprove of manipulating images; but simply because I never seem to have the time. One day (maybe) I'll go back and experiment with some of the images.
I've also got a little 4 megapixel Konica to slip in my pocket for times when I don't want to lug the serious gear around. I have been remarkably impressed with its performance so far; all of the Brooklands, Cornwall and east Devon pictures were taken using it.

A word for the non-anoraks...
Each "subject" has its own index page, with just one image here as a "taster" so explore and enjoy.
