Photography tips, techniques and tutorials help you take better photos. My tutorials are simple, clear and concise because life's too short for techno bull - 1000 new subscribers a week seem to agree. New video every Friday :-)
So who am I to help you get better photos? I've been a full time photographer since 1993 with awards from Kodak, Fuji and the master Photographers Association. I have a teaching qualification and just love it when people get that 'Eureka' moment. I think photography should be fun and fulfilling - don't you?
