Photographic Bio

I took up photography almost by accident by buying a cheap DSLR for my daughter on ebay in 2010. I was intrigued by it and she never actually received it (she has one now :) ). While looking for things to do with it I stumbled upon stock photography and learnt a lot, technically, in a short space of time getting my images up to the required standard. Stock now funds my hobby.

More recently I have wished to explore the more arty side and joined Leek PC to gain inspiration and motivation for other genres of photography, I have no real preferred subjects and yet to develop anything that could be referred to as a style!

Camera equipment

Nikon D800 and various lenses. Fuji XE1 and kit zooms as a walkabout.
