Photography

Pretty-ParrotIn my early teens I acquired a basic Kodak point and shoot camera and began exploring the photographic world.  As the years flew by my equipment updated accordingly. Next came a Fuji compact then an Olympus zoom. After discovering the S.L.R. range A Chinon 35mm with a 35-70 mm zoom lens opened my eyes to animal portraits. In my early 20’s I purchased a Minolta 7000 which had the added option of going from manual to auto focus .Over the next few years I just added lenses, flashes, battery packs and self timing devises. I was working for Techno cameras for a few years which also helped my knowledge of developing films and the processes of photography. It was there I discovered Nikon . In fact I won an award as the best Nikon sales person in 89. Also picked up an award for a photograph taken around that time. Having had 5 children they became my main subjects of study over the years.

I have been very fortunate to have travelled and have taken some interesting shots in quite bizarre places.

My love is of the big cats and the Lions of Longleat have posed for me on many occasions.
My interest in the arts has enabled me to look at things from a different angle.
What you see and what you don’t see I will capture.

I had great fun in Antigua, Mexico and Barbados spotting unusual life forms.
My dream would be to go on safari in Africa but I fear my health will not allow such a trip.
Another part of the world I adore is the underwater world.
Egypt has some amazing sea creatures .
Our next trip is to the Maldives so expect a lot of sea life shots.( If money permits will be investing in an underwater zoom camera)

I presently own a

  • Minolta 7000 with a 50mm. 35-70mm and a 75 -300mm fixed flash and off camera zoom flash
  • Nikon D5200 with a 18-55mm and a 55-200mm
  • Nikon 50mm underwater camera
