4Photography & Me
I’ve been taking photographs for as long as I can remember, I was given my first camera aged 11. My more serious interest started by photographing Formula 1 racing in the 1980, although I wasn't too interested in other types of photography until I joined Gwynfa camera club later in the decade.
With a lot of practice and perseverance I've managed to work out which buttons to press and (sometimes) where to point it. In more recent years I've been fortunate to obtain a few photography distinctions (AWPF, EFIAP, DPAGB & BPE4) and in 2018 I was chuffed to be awarded an honorary Fellowship of the Welsh Photographic Federation for services to Welsh club photography.
I’ll have a go at photographing anything but landscapes have become my passion. In recent years I’ve been lucky enough to visit many locations particularly Iceland: I've made many trips and have fallen in love with that mad, cold, hot, bonkers, beautiful, ugly island!
Currently I use a couple of Canon DSLR camera (one full frame, the other crop frame) and lenses from 8mm to 400mm, two of which are white. (Everyone knows that white lenses make you a better photographer). Usually the one on the camera isn't the one I need. I also have some nifty Lee filters that cost more than some of my cameras but are pure quality. My carbon fibre legs are provided by Manfrotto and I recently acquired a lovey geared head from Benro and some lovely Arca-Swiss bits from Three Legged Thing.
Away from photography my interests include Jaguars (I'm mad enough to have two - no Prescott jokes please, I've heard them all), Rugby Union, Formula One and really bad disaster movies. I'm still gutted that Wales lost in the semi-finals of the 2011 and 2019 Rugby World Cups and equally devastated that the drunk crop-dusting pilot got killed in ‘Independence Day’.
