Thank you for visiting. I've tried to put a variety of work up, reflecting my interests as well as the area in which I live.

I'd be only too delighted to chat about the images, photography in general, sailing or anything related to any of these. So please don't be shy. I've worked as an Yachtmaster Offshore sailing instructor for 14 years but have now had to call it a day which is a great shame.


About
I'm a retired Electrical Contracting Manager/Engineer. Having sailed and generally messed about on the water since the age of 11, I became an RYA Yachtmaster Instructor when I had the spare time at 50 and spent a wonderful 14 years on the water. Sadly in April 2011 I suffered a series of blackouts and the sailing was finished off for ever because of it. Even photography had to be put to one side for a period, but while I still get them, I'ts less often but the medics are still unable to tell me what the problem is.

I have recently exchanged my 30D for a 5D mkII & while still not "cured" my continuing recovery has allowed me to pick up my photography again. My glass is as follows:

EF 24-70 f/2.8L USM mkII
EF 70-200L f/2.8L IS mkII
EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS USM
EF 16-35 f/2.8L mkII USM

It is always the simple changes that are made here and there would result in making a picture look so unique the skill in not over doing these changes made. And do things in the limited amount too. http://www.fashionforplay.com
