Thank you for visiting my blog – I hope you find something that interests you.

I have set this up as an addition to my main web site so that I can share ideas, activities and the occasional rant about all things related to the built and natural environments.

I will also intend to include informative posts about various photographic processes, techniques and equipment.

Although my roots are in architectural and interior photography, the 2020 Covid19 pandemic and its associated forced restrictions gave me a golden opportunity to explore other media, such as aerial, timelapse and video and to experiment with other genre’s including abstract, landscapes and, most recently, wildlife.

This site gives me an outlet for these broader horizons, for exploring potential new directions for my professional photographic activities and perhaps identifying and acknowledging where my limitations and boundaries lie.

Posts related to my current outdoor activities can easily be found by clicking on the ‘Travel‘ menu tab.

Posts that feature technical information about  my photography are listed under ‘Photography
