Your Bio

Welcome to my Photo Albums

I am a keen Amateur photographer who came about the hobby by accident. I had never been interested in photography before but bought a little 'Happy Snappy' Canon S50 to take away on our 'trip of a lifetime' to the United States. The bug caught, as quick as that, and before the end of the trip I had upgraded to the newly released Sony F828, I was on my way.

What a learning curve, and I am still only a few paces up that steep hill but really enjoying the adventure. I am now on my 4th and 5th Camera (I dropped and broke the 3rd, a Canon 20D) I now have a Canon EOS 30D, and now (July 09), a Canon EOS 50D. Rather than go to a top end camera (no point if you cant drive it) I chose to 'invest', yes Invest because dam they are expensive in three top range lens's! I have the Canon 24-105 IS L, the Canon 28-300 IS L and my latest aquisition Canon 16-35 ISII f2.8 L, they are stunning and I am well pleased I took the leap.

I still have the original S50 and still use it regularly, it hangs round my neck at all event ready for the quick snappy. The Sony went to a great home with two friends who get great use out of it. The 20D is dead but I now use both the 30D and 50D out at events one with each lens to save changing.

I have a fascination with maps and try to GeoCode (embed GPS Latitude and Longitude) in all my pictures so you can see exactly where they are taken (Click 'Map' button on top menu bar). Plotting them on Google Earth I think adds a further dimension to the photography. There are some wonderful features on this site, try the 'Style' - 'Journal' (from the top menu bar) on each gallery, this really makes the pictures come alive!

I would really welcome comments, criticism and advice on my pictures to help me improve. The SmugMug DGRIN is the best forum out there by far and I have picked up some wonderful tips from here. Also, SmugMug has by far the best of the best in Photographers as members. I am in awe of some of the work I see on this site and it really inspires me to try and improve my skills.

I have a lot of fun, no, not all my pictures are 'Pin' and I am not one of these competion junkies, I cannot pick singular pictures as 'Keepers' or 'Best' each picture has something for me and I enjoyed taking them. I hope you enjoy browsing them.

Best Regards: Steve
