Historically, taking pictures was largely just for fun, but since leaving full time work at the end of 2015 (aged ~55) this increasingly expensive hobby that gets me out of the house has become my day job.
2016 & 2017 were years of discovery for me and my photograph - spending over 16 weeks on a safari, mainly in Africa, and taking lots of opportunity to engage with top pros on workshops and seminars. I have learnt a lot, but I’m aware I have much more to go.
From May 2020 I acquired a Hasselblad X1D-II and have begun my medium format journey.
Almost all images are shot with Nikon digital cameras from one of the first digital point and shoots to my latest acquisitions D5 and D500 and my trusty pair of D850s. Almost all my shots are taken RAW and are converted, adjusted and cropped in Lightroom and Photoshop.
A number of my shots involve predators interacting with prey -- including killing and eating -- so beware.
