I've been interested in photography since I can remember. My early days involved just pointing a camera at anything and hoping that my parents would give me another roll of film.

I really feel that I my eye and technical ability improved as I travelled the world with my wife (we were on the road for 2 years... that's A LOT of photos, and even more trial and error!). Where initially I think I annoyed her, as she began to see me improve she became more enthusiastic and now just accepts that photos are going to be taken no matter what!

The birth of my son Miles has also brought new challenges and I've started to try taking portraits a bit more!

I'm excited about joining the Blip community - I've been blown away by some of the amazing photos that I've seen up here and hope that I will be able to get even close to some of them! I can see that I'll always be thinking about the next photo, and it'll make me carry my much-loved Olympus e620 with me on the day-to-day.

Update: after over 600 blips, I'm still here! Blip really gets under your skin. I now shoot with an Olympus EM-1 as the poor e620 was worked far too hard for too long!
