I started taking photos at the age of 11 with a Zenith Photosniper kit bought from a friend. It had manual focus lenses (well it was 1982) one was a wide angle and one was a 300mm.. I didn’t keep it long, but photography became this beast within….
Many, many years later in 2002, I bought my first digital camera, a Fuji 2 megapixel camera… Then upgraded and upgraded again to my first DSLR. This was a Nikon D70.. That did not last long and was replaced under warranty for a D70s. This did me well for many years.
In recent years I have held music workshops for children and adults, lessons at a public school and recording session on other artists albums. Over the last 20 years I have taught myself a large number of instruments and have my own style of playing. In 2004 I released my first album “Well now ya here!”
I am also a sound recordist of natural phenomenon, from weather to wildlife, in the air, on the ground or under water. I am also working on a number of sound art projects for release on CD in 2014. I am also available to create pieces for the public domain or to compose music to brief.
Sound is a fantastic medium to work in and one that has the ability to influence and control emotions and inspire us in everyday life and even pass exams.
I review things that may be of interest to those working in the same areas as myself.
