Biography

I’m an amateur photographer who lives in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire: I enjoy photographing the countryside near where I live. Although I’ve had a camera for 50 years or so it’s only in the last few years that I’ve taken photography a little more seriously but only a little, I still enjoy the process. Thanks.

YouTube channels I subscribe to that help me with my photography: Thomas Heaton, Simon Baxter, Serge Ramelli, Phillip McCordall who I can’t recommend highly enough, Paul G. Johnson, Mujahid, First Man Photography and of course, Mike Browne. Others that I watch on an occasional basis: Gavin Hoey and Kelvin Designs.

All work is mine, unless otherwise stated, and subject to copyright.

        Like Denise said. Really interesting lighting and selfie (sorry I meant "self portrait") :-) And like Howard said. You have a very photogenic face. It's great.

      Joe Lightheart: Those of you who know Joe and follow him on Facebook will already know this, but he is back home from his travels in South America and Asia. He has recently posted a few excellent images on Facebook and I hope he’ll be back on CAS soon too.
