Apart from modelling I photograph anyhing that appeals really, here's a few from recent folders as you'll see they're of a pretty eclectic taste from flora and fauna to local events the family pets etc. Ihave in the past done a couple of weddings but that is seriously high pressure and hopefully will not be doing any more.

 

P.S. Sorry chaps I just can't get my thumnails on here to stay in the correct ratiofrown

Edit CB - to remove width and height numbers from the image properties.

I'm quite dull these days - and just can't help photographing my small garden.  BIG change from my days shooting glamour models!

Gents if you are adding photos hosted elsewhere and are having aspect ratio issues, try removing all numbers from the width and height boxes as you post.

I am a wildlife recorder and a member of our local Natural History group (CAN) and consequently do a bit of wildlfe photography.

This shot of a Soukern Hawker took me 5 hours to capture, waiting and stalking on its (fairly) regular patrol. Its a full frame (not cropped) image taken with a 300mm lens.

Very rewarding.

Very proud of this, not so much for the photo but the content, taken at my wife Jane's investiture at Buckingham Palace last year and yes I did take the shot if you look carefully you can see the remote in my right hand.

I visit the Lakes a lot so, like millions before, the camera is always out. Two of my favourites over the years.....

A couple of my favourites, probably because of the memories rather than the quality of the pictures.

Here is another shot I took with my faithful Minolta at the prime focus of a 200mm f4 telescope.

It is a stacked image of 24 seperate exposures each of 30 secs at 1600ASA, ie a total of 12 minutes exposure using the telscope on an equatorial mount that allows the object to be tracked - so no star trails.

It is M42 - the Great Orion Nebula. With some monitors, you can detect extended red around the left of the bright area - this show Hydrogen Gas emitting radiation, the blue is hydrogen gas reflecting radiation. From this you can deduce the location of the stars in relation to the surrounding gas. The red is Hydrogen Alpha - unfortunately mainly blocked by the IR/UV filter in front of the CCD on the camera.

Possibly the last one...

This was taken at the 2002 British Grand Prix (At Donnington) through the chainlink catch fence. Its actually an image on film smile o in the days when it was too expensive not to make photos count.

Minolta 7x with the 300mm lens again..

Alex Barros on the Honda NSR500 in the last year of racing.

Very pleased with this for a bike that is doing about 150mph. It's pin sharp - you can read all the sponsor logos on the swinging arm

Regards
