[my ugly mug is missing at the moment… Will sort it out later]

Here’s my ugly mug. Yeah, I know I don’t have any hair! I cut it off on a regular basis. Since having kids, the hair seems to have gone south, permanently.

I was born in London, many many years ago.

I spend a lot of time with Photography these days. Whenever I can, I like to take all sorts of photography, from Landscape, Portrait, Action, Event, etc. Sometimes, I’ll just say to my daughter, let’s go for a walk and take some pictures of such and such place. Or, I’ll just head off for a drive, to get some specific type of pictures. The equipment I use is primarily Canon, what am I talking about? I only use Canon for cameras. I have a Canon 60D, and a S100 point and shoot. There is a Canon SX260 lurking around in the distance that I may start to use as a point and shoot, mainly because it has a 20x Optical zoom, which is 25-500mm in standard equivalents. As for lenses, I have a few. The camera came with the kit 18-135mm zoom, and I also got the 70-300mm zoom as a package deal. Since then I have acquired a Canon 10-22mm Ultra Wide Angle zoom, a Sigma 10mm Fisheye, Canon 50mm F/1.4, Tamron 18-270mm zoom, Canon 70-200mm F/2.8 IS II. I have also picked up a stereo microphone so that when I do HD Video, I can get some decent sound on the 60D as well. I am really interested in Light Painting, Drop photography, and Shooting Photography, so don’t really get chance to do these as much as I’d like.

I also play piano, keyboards & synthesizers. Another of my pastimes are Martial Arts. I have been practicing since I was about 8 onwards. I have years of training in Taikwondo,  Judo, Shotokan, and Aikido.
