A hobby that started over twenty years ago became a passion. For me, photography became a tool for capturing a moment in time and then having the ability to show it to the world, in image form.
As an enthusiast of the Great Outdoors; photographing landscape, seascape and natural world images are my favoured genres.
In early 2021, I started a new project “Mastering Your Photography”. This entails producing and publishing online video tutorials. These videos are released on a regular basis from my YouTube Channel and can be viewed on the link below:-
During my work as a Photography Expedition and Workshop leader, I come into contact with many photo enthusiasts of all differing levels of knowledge and expertise.
As such, I am aware of the subjects that most students want to address during our time together. Some topics relate to photography tuition “in the field” and some to post production tips and techniques.
Composition, bracketing images, long Exposure, using filters, using different lenses; the list is endless. It is my intention to address many of these areas of photography over the coming weeks, months and years.
“Mastering Your Photography” will direct my video tuition towards these issues, in a simplified way.
Four years ago, I decided to start sharing my knowledge and skills in photography with others. So, I researched, arranged and starting to take like-minded photography enthusiasts on expeditions and workshops.
Initially, these were held in beautiful locations solely in the UK. However, due to my love for travelling, I also started to take the tours and workshops further afield internationally.
I am also obsessed with photography gear. Over the years, I have purchased quite a lot of high-quality equipment including my current primary camera – the Nikon D850. I love this camera!
I strongly believe the eye of the photographer behind the lens is most important, but better tools do help to improve your image in so many different ways.
Post production is also an important part of my modern digital photography. Having had some 15 years’ experience using Photoshop, Lightroom and more recently Camera Raw, I teach students tips and techniques in post production. However, I am always learning as Adobe Creative Cloud regularly update their platforms.
“I love playing with light and long exposures. Capturing landscapes, seascapes, and photographing beautiful sunrise and sunset colours is so intriguing. For me, that is where the nature is at its best, and it gives me a real BUZZ every time”.
Remember, the best professional photographers don’t always get it right!
