My photographic style: I like abstract to macro to nature and wildlife and flexible to sports. Understanding the sport eg cycling, been a ex racing cyclist, I know where riders might attack or might fall. In athletics particularly indoors, knowing when to shoot as the pounding of feet approach at incredible speed.

My greatest strengths: Ability to work alone, good detail and good composition , looking for all angles , using the ambient light available. Knowing when a sunset is ready and at what angle and background I want to achieve.

I have been in photography: I started by buying my first 35mm slr film camera in Wimbledon around 1994. Getting old now and a tiny bit wiser.

How I got started in photography: First I was self taught through film photography, then I travelled all over Asia and Europe taking photos , Creating my own style. Then I went back to college to study photography.

My photographic skills: My awareness and ability to have patience and the awareness to strike when the moment arrives. Knowing when the moment is about to arrive.

My personality: Relax and calm person with a happy disposition, keep things simple but at the same time allowing my creativity to flow.

Geographic areas I cover: Ireland and Islands

Venues I frequently attend: Nature and the great outdoors ,Sporting events like football, rugby and athletics.
