Why do I take photos? I’m a visual person. In most aspects of life I prefer an image to explain the situation, so I’m drawn to a photograph. And like someone can feel emotion from a piece of music, I can get the same feelings from a picture.
I like photography because it it gives me thinking space. Just me and the camera. I can sit for a couple of hours watching the world go by, taking pictures of moments that I hope represent what my day has involved.
I don’t have particular genre. I guess I would favour Portrait, Sport, Documentary and Street Photography, but I like to have a go at everything.
I’m a Nikon user. I’ve been through a F80, D40, D90 and D7000. All of which I still use (except the F80 – but I’m looking to start using that again). I use a mixture of Nikon, Sigma and Tamron lenses. I process pictures using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.
I’ve also started to use a Fuji X70, a fantastic camera.
