I'm a UK based photographer, with a passion for Motorsports and Wildlife. But I'm happy to take on any challenge!
Feel free to browse my images using the gallery categories above. Any comments are always welcome.

Please e-mail me using this link if you would like copies of or the use of any of my images. If you have a project which would require my services, then again please contact me here to discuss your requirements.

I started out on my photographic journey with a Canon AE-1 (with 28mm f2.8, 50mm f1.4 & 100-200mm zoom FD lenses) in the early '80s but eventually got fed up with film processing costs and the waiting for the lab to process the photos.

After some time, I then progressed into digital with a Nikon Coolpix 4300 but I soon got frustrated with this due to the lack of control compared to my old film SLR, and so I progressed onto DSLRs.
image Firstly with a crop body (DX) Nikon D50 in 2007 with an 18-55mm lens kit and a 70-300mm telephoto lens which worked well and I learned a lot. DX bodies work great for longer distances as they are effectively a 1.5x multiplier to the focal length of a lens e.g. a 24mm lens would give the effective reach of a 36mm lens.
I then upgraded to another DX body, the Nikon D300 in 2009 which was a phenomenal upgrade in picture quality and as this was a professional body a good upgrade in camera handling too. Around this time I also added some VR lenses which also helped with hand holding at slow shutter speeds. While this gave a small boost in low light capability, it was not quite enough for my needs.
I have now moved up into full-frame (FX) with a Nikon D750 and 24-120mm lens kit. FX bodies just use the focal length of the lens (without a multiplier) so a 24mm lens works as a 24mm lens. This should give me the best of both worlds in that the FX body will give better performance in low light & portrait scenarios, while I still can use the DX body where good light & reach is required.
