Welcome

Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. Although always having an interest in photography it was not until 2005 that I acquired a digital camera and started to take photographs. Being an IT person I found it easy to analyse and understand the results and therefore I quickly mastered the camera.
The difficult part is mastering the composition and I know from looking at other photographers work that this can take years to achieve. Fortunately, I am very lucky as I have an understanding wife and lots of time to go out taking pictures. There is nothing more rewarding than watching wildlife or seeing the sun come up over
the horizon and it can be even more rewarding if this can be captured into a photographic memory that myself, and hopefully others, will be able to enjoy. I really appreciate you looking at my work and hope that you might contact me with any feedback.

2017 November - Antarctica

This is a place I've had on my bucket list for a long time and two things stopped me going; the sea crossing and the cost. Anyway, after coming to terms with the cost I decided to book with WildPhoto on a trip specifically aimed at photographer. I joined my friends, Ann Brooks and John Betts on the trip. The crossing to Antarctica was fine with an uneventful crossing and the weather in Antarctica was blue sky and calm seas - not at all what I envisaged. Beautiful for tourists but not quite the howling gales and wind swept penguins and seals I had in mind. Unfortunately on the last day the weather turned and I got some really nice photographs of Elephant Seals hankered down in the blizzard. Our landing was cut short as the weather was so bad. Then the nightmare crossing began for two days of hell on water. 
Never again I said. I think I will be saying it in ten years time. NEVER AGAIN!!
