Interesting year already...

I was very excited to receive an email after uploading "Colourful" to 500px, Bauer Media contacted me asking to publish my picture in their upcoming "Digital Photo" Magazine. After finding out I was shortlisted for the magazine, it was just a case of waiting...

April 2014 edition is currently out and has my photo in the Get the Shot Feature :)

Thank you to everyone at 500px and the whole community.

Concert Photography

Published June 19th, 2013

I now realise that when you do a concert or intimate gig, as this one was, you need to take all your gear with you. The lighting was terrible, but thankfully I managed to get a few good ones from the night. Bo Bruce was absolutely amazing.

The group criticised the living conditions for the animals and the safety barriers, calling for the zoo's license to be revoked.[6] The council were reluctant to revoke the zoo's licence, due to concerns over the future of the animals, but did charge Ellis Daw with 16 offenses after the zoo was investigated. All but one of these charges were dropped, but Ellis Daw was found guilty of breeding Siberian tigers outside of an organised breeding programme, and of keeping them in poor conditions.

Shaugh Prior

Published February 19th, 2013

Shaugh Prior is a beautiful, magical place, I hope I have captured it as well as I could in Autumn!

Thanks for all your support and votes.

I have always loved photos, my father when i was child processed photos in a developing room. I have grown and enjoyed the life of technology, but since I met my fiancee and enjoyed the sights in Asia I have took to taking photography up as a hobby.

I am new and I am still learning but I love the outcome and enjoy the moments.
