I guess I'm really a frustrated artist. I used to paint in pastels mainly, my favourite subjects being wildlife, portraits and realism and I have always been interested in photography. Then shortly after I retired I discovered Photoshop and found that I could paint the pictures I saw in my mind digitally and I have been following the "Photo Art" direction ever since.
I joined my local Photographic society and have benefited greatly from that and because I enter their competitions almost every image I produce is from my own photography, including my own textures. We are not allowed to use Stock images, which means we get to travel to build our own image archives.
I like all forms of photography, Documentary, Mono, Portrait, Landscape etc but my main interest is in Wildlife.
Outside of my family and photography, my other interests are music and Liverpool FC.
