November 2017 Tips

Good photography depends far more on skill than it does gear. Good cameras don’t guarantee great photographs, and several professional photographers have been known to shoot with disposable cameras. The secret to great photography is rooted in having a solid understanding of the technical elements of photographs and how they interact with one another.


October 2017 Tips:

"The photographer sees the world as a child sees the bits of glass in a kaleidoscope. If he has a camera with which he can secure these ever-changing combinations, he is then able to look on them again and again, and he has the further pleasure of pleasing others with the sight of things which he, with perhaps unusual opportunities, was able to see, which his friends would otherwise not ever be able to."

Frank Meadow Sutcliffe 1899


"Do job that is your passion and you will never work a day in your life again"



" Light makes photography.
   Embrace light.
  Admire it. 
  Love it. 
  But above all, know light.
 Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to Photography"

George Eastman

October 2014 Tips:

One of my personal favourites:

"The camera is a "save" button for the mind's eye"

Rodger Kingston


" "I am a Photographer"  is an open sesame to places and people I would otherwise avoid. 
In reality, of course, you soon discover by experience that if you are genuinely interested in what is going on, then people become extremely friendly.One of the easiest ways to to overcome shyness is to become a Photographer. "

David Hurn


March 2013 Tip:

The first golden tip that I can offer about use and type of camera to purchase is never to forget  that the best camera to own is the one that is with you at the time.
So make sure you have a camera that is with you so that you will never have to miss "capturing the moment"
