A couple of years ago somebody showed me some pictures of macro photography. They looked interesting, however, it did not resonate with me. Now, many years later, I read some booksand looked at videos on Youtube. It turns out that macro photography is a lot more than taking pictures of plants and insects and laying on the ground. So, there was a growing interest.After realising that my regular lenses would not suffice, I looked at possible cheap adjustments:- close-up filters are put on a regular... continue reading

... It's almost St' Valentine's Day, who's in love with you? I have to admit I've never really been one for Valentines Day, I'm not really the romantic type and prefer to show my love in ways other than buying predictable (usually red coloured) gifts and paying inflated prices for restaurants overflowing with couples who have the same idea. Why not just go to the restaurant another time, you'll probably get better service and the food will taste better as the chef can take more time and care... continue reading

Since becoming a fulltime stock photographer I have been inundated with requests from family and friends to photograph them, their pets, their homes etc. Most of the time these shoots are a fun way to do something nice for the people I care about, as well as provide me with a great opportunity to expand my portfolio. However there is one request that I have always turned down with a very definite no, and that is weddings.I find it frustrating when a young 'bride to be', (one who's spent a small... continue reading
One of my favorite collections I have created with the work from other photographers is called Music and Roses.I created this collection of pictures to feature the different pictures I thought had a romantic or classy feel to them as long as they had a rose and dealt with music in thepicture.I am very selective of the pictures I wanted to feature in this collection.I look for pictures of roses that do not look like they are dieing.I also look to see how is the rose positioned in the picture... continue reading

Summer is here and flowers are bursting into bloom. There they are right outside the door and so pretty. But just because they are so marvelous doesn't mean that you need to photograph them. It seems that every flower that has ever bloomed has had its picture taken. When the supply out numbers the demand...well you know what that means in the eyes of reviewers.Before you even think about taking another photo of a flower, ask yourself if the world really needs it. But if you must, how can you make... continue reading
