I am a keen Semi Professional Photographer based in West Sussex just a mile from the coast. I mainly concentrate my efforts on photographing Landscape and Nature. There is a great diversity of Wildlife on the Sussex Downs and Coastal regions and a great many more that pass through on their annual migration. Occasionally i'm lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time to get some decent images. All too often i'm in my car either going to work or going home when i see some of the most stunning sunrises and sunsets. Its frustrating! but i have to earn a living. Sometimes i have taken my Camera bag with me but without much success.

I tend not to use Photo Processing Programs such as photoshop very much but try to get things as right as possible in Camera But the D3s tendency to attract dust as readily as a vacuum cleaner forces me to use the Spot Healing Brush on a regular basis.

I have been selling enlarged prints of up to A3+ size and Greetings cards through several local shops for the past three years. I'm not making a profit but it does help with the expenses.

The equipment i currently use is as follows.
Nikon D3 & D5000 Bodies
Nikkor afs 16-35 f4g ED
Nikkor afs 24-85 f3.5 GED
Nikkor 50mm f1.8
