I purchased my first DSLR in April 2011 and have enjoyed learning about photography ever since. I am finding the Flickr community to be a continual source of inspiration and knowledge and loving participating in it.

 

My main photographic interests are the local wildlife (mainly birds and kangaroos in the nearby Woodlands Historic Park) and the wonderful city I live in (Melbourne, Australia - the worlds most liveable city), with a special interest (actually, let's be honest an obsession) in Melbourne's wonderful street art and laneways. The transient nature of the street art makes it a compulsion for me to try and record it photographically before it is destroyed or painted over.

Andrew is what I call a real photographer. He lives and breathes photography, and I’m pretty sure that he shoots every single day! I am always impressed with his daily uploads. His gallery is filled with impeccable images of lovely flowers and wildlife. I have to mention here that the focus in his images is some of the best I’ve ever seen! Interestingly, he also has a passion for urban photography. I love his photos of building murals and arty graffiti that he discovers around the city. Andrew is a thoughtful and caring person with strong convictions, all of which comes through in his exceptional photography.

His love of art and bird photography really shines through and you can see the thought and emotion that goes into each image. He so creative and imaginative, producing beautiful digital art from his photographs. I cannot begin to image how he comes up with his ideas and the skill required to do this.
