Serious-ish hobbyist photographer since 2011. I'm a shooter of all things from aircraft to waterfalls and most things in between! These days I probably would say my two main genres are architecture and people, although I will try my hand at everything.

 

In terms of awards I'm a BPE2* at the moment, I have varying success in these competitions and still haven't really found the sweet spot. In 2015 I gained a Licentiate Distinction from the Royal Photographic Society, and only in 2019 am I starting to think about doing a panel for an Associateship. I've been a member of Buckingham Camera Club since late 2011, and have won the Club Photographer of the Year Award in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2018.

 

My kit? In 2011 I started growing my kit as well moving from a Nikon D40X to a D7000 body with a simple but effective Tamron 18-270mm superzoom. Over time I've moved through the D600 (and D610 thanks to Nikon's upgrade!) and then the D750. I now own 14-24mm, 24-70mm and 70-200mm lenses - all f/2.8. A couple of cheapish and cheerful lenses complete the F-mount collection - a 50mm f/1.8 and a Samyang 12mm f/2.8 fisheye.

 

In October 2018 I took the plunge and invested in a Nikon Z7, with my first Z-mount lens being a 35mm f/1.8. I've been blown away by the quality, usability and weight of the new mirrorless and look forward to exploring with this new kit, which works nicely with my old F-mount lenses through the Nikon adaptor. Lots of new potential!

 

I enjoy all sorts of photography, and hope you enjoy my pictures. I have my own website at www.eatshootfly.com. You can also follow me on Twitter @eatshootfly, or Like my page on Facebook www.facebook.com/eatshootfly!
