I am now retired from professional photography, but still pursue photographic interests in marine and landscape photography. My much loved film cameras are now gathering dust in a cupboard, as I now shoot 100% using digital cameras. I use a Nikon D80 SLR and a Nikon P7000 compact camera, and use a range of lenses, including a fisheye for 360 degree panoramas.
I have witnessed many changes in equipment and techniques, during my life, but no change has been as dramatic and swift, as the switch from film to digital recording. And a good thing it is too. No more toxic chemicals to contend with. No more days on end hidden away from daylight, like mushrooms, in the darkroom!
The incredible control, of shooting RAW images, and manipulation using applications such as Photoshop and Lightroom.
I have designed and built this website using the web authoring and maintenance software Adobe Dreamweaver.
The photographic galleries have been produced directly from my image database in Adobe Lightroom. Lightroom is an incredible piece of software; a professional photographers dream. I was a beta tester during their development of this software, so thoroughly recomend it to all enthusiasts.
I use Eye-One Match 3 software and a Macbeth spectrophotometer for colour management of display screens and printers to ensure precision of reproduction from camera, to computer screen, to print or web. My printer has archival inks - producing prints that are lightfast for nearly 100 years, subjected to direct daylight/sun.
The Ramblers section is being continuosly added to, with new illustrated walks.
