My Bio
I am a photographer from the South of England. I have always had a passion for the natural world and it is my intention to try to convey that love to others through my artwork. I adore being close to the sea and therefore many of my photography missions take me to stretches of the British coastline.

I owe much of my talent to my friends here on DA, before I joined I really had little idea about the true disciplines of photography. Although I spent many years teaching myself the technical side and building up my kit, it has been here on DA that I have really been able to develop my skills for the "creation of captured art".

Current Residence: Hampshire UK
Shell of choice: The one I hide in.
Personal Quote: Some people know what they need, others need what they know.

Favourite Games
Photoshop.
Tools of the Trade
Tools don't matter, Knowledge does! But a sturdy tripod is essential. (Kit List in scraps!!)
Other Interests
The world it's nature and it's music

I cannot afford to sell up with Canon and move to Nikon and although I have considered it many times in the past and now, in light of the D800, seriously considered it, I won't. Mainly the reason

DISASTER!

Last weekend I managed to throw my canon 24-105mm L IS lens off of a cliff! I was perched on the edge of a cliff with my camera. After waiting for the sun to set and getting my last shot for the day I reached out and grabbed my rucksack from it's very secure position. I had not zipped it up since swapping lenses some time before and had only flapped the front over it. As I swung it onto my back out flew my lens and 2 lens hoods. I saw the whole thing in slow motion. A 70m drop onto rocks saw off my lens with a hideous smashing noise ringing in my ears....I can still hear it. 2 photographers on the beach below saw me do it. I only found the f
