I qualified as an engineer in the early 1970’s and worked for local manufacturing companies until 2010.
During this time photography was a hobby of mine, shooting transparency film when I could afford it, and then digital around 2005.
Since 2010 until 2018 I have worked as a freelance photographer, trying the different genres of photography, to find what I wanted to photograph. It did not take long to decide that landscape photography was what I enjoyed the most.
2018 to present retired enjoying my time behind the camera creating images that please me.
Starting with what I consider to be the most important is my iPad mini with CamRanger, Mark II Artist's Viewfinder app.
I photograph landscapes with digital cameras, Canon DSLR full frame and cropped sensor bodies, Ricoh Theta V for my 360 images.
Lenses for my Canon bodies range from 15mm to 200mm primes and zooms plus a 2X extender and 24mm tilt shift.
Accessories - Manfrotto tripods, tripod levelling base, Arca Swiss quick release clamp, L brackets and ballheads.
Filters - Polariser, ND1000, ND64, ND16, ND8, ND4, ND2, ND Soft Grads 0.6 and 0.9
Ricoh Theta V 360 images and video edited on Theta+ App on iPad and CyberLink PowerDirector
I capture my SLR images in RAW format then catalogue in Adobe Lightroom.
Edit in DxO Optics Pro, Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop.
