About Me

I live in Melbourne, Australia.

 

My love of photography is inherited from my late parents, especially my father, and I have always had some form of camera, from an instamatic to SLR.  My favourite film camera was my Canon T90 which travelled with me to Africa on five trips in the 1990s.

 

In 2007 I finally moved into digital photography with a Canon Powershot S5 IS, upgrading to a Canon EOS 500D in 2009, both of which came with me on my  trips to Kenya in 2009 and Southern Africa in 2010.  I now use two Canon SLR bodies - EOS 60D and EOS 600D.

 

Africa is my great love and wildlife photography is my passion.  Having the opportunity to sit and observe an animal in its natural environment is a privilege.  Being close to an animal without interfering in their personal space is an exhilarating experience.

I also love the colours of the sky at sunrise and sunset, especially if there are lots of clouds about to add drama to the scene.

PUBLISHED: My leopard photo "Watching the World" was published in the November 2011 edition of "Digital Photography Enthusiast" magazine as its Image of the Month.
