About Me

I remember slide evenings looking at Dad's images of Antarctica.

I remember him saying his best shots were of a similar quality to those that the expedition's photographer discarded.

I remember being given my first SLR when I was in my teens, to photograph my exchange year in Japan.

I remember not knowing how to use it.

Since then I have dipped in and out of photography, taking photos when I've travelled, when I've thought that I wanted something to remind me of places I'd visited.

I decided to undertake some formal photography studies because I wanted to increase my percentage of keepers. I wanted to take photos that weren't just "nice travel shots"; I wanted to take photos that people would look at and say "great shot". 

I also wanted to develop my visual skills and creativity, but that's a long hard road for someone who wasn't brought up in a visual world and who has always felt more comfortable with words. 

That said, my formal studies have taught me much, including that there is much more to learn. 

Thankfully I am at a stage of my life where I don't have to do things I don't enjoy to make a living. While I'm deciding what to do with my photography - whether to remain an enthusiastic amateur, or to dabble in making money from it - I'm looking forward to hours of learning, practice and fun.
