Photography & 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 & BPE3). 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 eight 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 some lenses, 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 legs are provided by Manfrotto.
Away from photography my interests include Jaguars (I'm mad enough to have two), 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 Cup and equally devastated that the drunk crop-dusting pilot got killed in ‘Independence Day’.
