A quick piece about me.

I've been taking photographs since I was in school and had an SLR since shortly after leaving. I have had a darkroom in the past, and have always liked B&W work.

Since the advent of digital my photography has taken off. My favourite types of photography are Landscape (by my definition - anything you can take on a walk in the country),and Cityscape (my definition again - as Landscape but in urban areas, except for shots where the primary subject is people).

I have done a couple of photographic jobs that I have been paid for , but would not consider myself a pro - I'd starve on what I have made so far!

I also regularly give talks and advice at my local camera club - Vauxhall Chilterns, not a top ranking club but I am trying to get them to raise their game a little.

Before joining my local club I was (and still am) a member of United Photographic Postfolios - a sort of postal camera club - great for getting feedback on your own pictures, and honing your analytical skills by giving feedback to others as well. You get a folio a month to comment on and add a new picture to, then post it on, each 'circle' has around 12 members so you can get some good feedback to help you improve, without it becoming too onerous a task.

As for kit - Ernst Haas said "The camera doesn't make a bit of difference. All of them can record what you are seeing. But, you have to SEE." You will have ot look at my Blips to see what I use - it is the image that counts not the kit.

I generally aim to produce and process my blips in under 15 minutes unless it is something special or that I am likely to use for something else. So sometimes the blip will not be as perfect as I may like, but time doesn't always permit me to spend more time than that some days. Commenting etc takes longer than that.
