Living in Kineton, Warwickshire, I have been taking photographs since the 1970s. At first with my father's Kodak Retina until I bought a Pentax ME Super with one of my early pay cheques. Went for a DSLR (Canon 350D in ~2006)
Mostly interested in landscape & wildlife photography and developing interests in still life & macro. As we now have two grandchildren, my portraits are slowly improving too.
Currently using a Canon 5D mk4 most often with a 24-105,17-40 or 100 macro. Wildlife with a Canon 400/5.6.
I don't find a blip every day, but the notion of looking for interesting images has led me into types of photography I would never have thought of trying e.g being asked to photograph a local choir and providing landscapes for a village news sheet. I've also taken part in a gallery exhibition and had one image used as a weather forecast background.
Blipfoto has definitely been a positive influence on my view of the world, and what a great community it is too.
Away from photography I am a chartered electrical engineer, although I retired in mid-September 2018 :-) Married to Gill, we have two brilliant grown up children, and two grandchildren. Cycling and live music are my other 'interests'. Retirement/Late Middle Age crisis purchase was a motorhome - so off to see Europe next year :-)
