My photographic style: My Style? I would say "traditionally relaxed!" I try to be unobtrusive & informal, whilst always being aware of the customer's needs & requirements.
My greatest strengths: One of my strengths is the ability to adapt and respond to the 'changing scene' that invariably happens during a planned shoot! (Oh, what I wouldn't give for an "Acme Bad Weather alarm"!)
I have been in photography: I picked up my first camera in 1976. It was a Russian Zenit E 35mm SLR. After many different film cameras, both 35mm & medium format, I was 'digitalised' (made up word!) in 1999. I invested in a Fuji camera, 1.3m pixels and as big as a brick! Oh, how technology moves! I now use a Nikon system based around the D800 and D300s.
How I got started in photography: In 1976 I left school & joined the Army as an apprentice carpenter/joiner. As an apprentice one was 'encouraged' (ordered!) to take up 3 hobbies to while away our spare time. One of my hobbies was photography. On joining the photography club I was given a roll of Ilford FP4 black & white film and the aforementioned Zenit E. That was the start of a 'love affair' that has continued to this day.
My photographic skills: Without blowing my own trumpet, I would like to think that I'm able to put my sitter/subject at ease in front of the camera, thereby enabling some great images to be captured.
My personality: Easy going and relaxed, on the outside at least. With a dry, self depreciating sense of humour, (So I've been told). I try and have fun during a shoot, be it Portrait, wedding or pet session.
Geographic areas I cover: Lincoln & surrounding areas. Or if prior commitments allow, I am able to travel further afield.
Venues I frequently attend: I don't particularly have any 'favourite' venues as such. Each has its own qualities, and it's up to me, as the photographer, to try and show off the venue at its best, whatever the challenges.
I found inspiration from: There are too many photographers to mention who inspire me. I try to take at least one 'great' (in my mind) image a day.
Photographic training: Mostly self taught in the technicalities of photography. I have attended various wedding and portrait courses during my career.
My interests outside photography: I play golf, (17 handicap!). I read (mostly auto biographies & non fiction). I enjoy local history and also tracing my family history.
