Photographic Bio

Joining Leek, it's friendly members & competitions was just what I needed. Click VIEW THIS MEMBER and any of 3 links to see "What NOT to enter" "How images were improved" "Worms Eye View" & "Seasons" for 2017/18 ?. I'm proud to be a member of Leek, a club worth supporting. So tell your family & friends about us, bring guests, enter what you enjoy taking. You can also see my extensive Minolta vintage camera collection and how to repair or renovate old cameras. Above all ENJOY taking or making images.

Camera equipment

Currently I still use Old Minolta lenses on Sony full frame A99v DSLT [Translucent] and Sony Nex CSC [Mirrorless] including one converted to Infra Red in USA. I also use adapters for many vintage lenses. Printing on two ancient and battered Epson printers, R300 A4 & R2400 A3+ with Epson long life inks and ultra glossy papers. Recently acquired a Camera Axe, which is a sensor/water drop valve, with sound or light triggers so experimenting with that ;-). Now trying bird table photography and trying to PROVE you do NOT need to spend £THOUSANDS on a super long FAST lens, though if anyone has one they want to part with cheaply ;-)

Preferred subjects

Quirky things, trying birds on my home made bird feeding table.
