Alongside music, I have a real passion for photography, and in recent years, I've been fortunate enough to be able to indulge that passion.
I'm really and most definitely NOT into the happy families, smiling babies and fluffy animals thing, I am more than very happy to leave that to everyone else. My interests lie firmly in a more creative/dramatic/eclectic direction, things which you wouldn't ordinarily look at to take a picture of or a subject that isn't your normal cup of photographic cup of tea. So, when you look at my photos, you'll see concerts, old derelict buildings, alternative landscapes, recording studios and very soon close-ups of ordinary things seen from a different angle.
Please do click on the gallery links on the right-hand sinde of this page to get a feel for what I do. I also have a Flickr page where all my pictures are displayed, and which you can fine HERE.
The list below shows my weapons of choice:Canon 1100D digital SLR

I'm also very much into the processing side of photography and the advent of the digital darkroom has been a wonderful thing. Here's a list of the software I use for processing my photographs:Adobe Bridge CC

Naturally, photography is one of those pastimes whereby new bits and pieces are always going to be added, and as that happens, I'll update this page.
