Take nothing but pictures
Leave nothing but footprints

The only picture of me that I like

Hi and welcome

I’ve been taking photographs since I was a teenager and through my own experience and reading what seems like libraries of books (and pages on the web) I’d like to think that I’ve become a pretty reasonable photographer.

But there is always more to learn so I decided it was about time I formalised my photographic education and I’ve signed up for the OCA BA(Hons) Photography degree.

It’s a bit of a daunting prospect (finding the time will be pretty hard) but I’m looking forward to the challenge.

I’ll be using the blog for two main purposes:

  1. As the learning log for my OCA course. I’ll be posting my projects and assignments here for review. Please feel free to pass comment even if you have nothing to do with the course… any feedback is good feedback.
  2. As a general blog about photography. It could be anything from great tutorial pages I’ve found about photographic technique to how to get the best from the software. Of course I’ll also be trawling through my existing portfolio and posting what I think are my best pictures so far. Again all comments are welcome.

Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy what you see.
