My main line of work is technical illustration and over the years I have worked in the aircraft industry as well as for a German illustration agency, a major minerals company and now as a freelance technical illustrator. There is a certain amount of crossover between illustration and photography and in recent times my leaning towards photography has increased.

My first camera in the 1960's was a Kodak Instamatic after which I purchased a Praktica Nova B and then a Praktica MTL5. In 2003 I inherited my late father's Olypmus OM10 but by this time digital cameras were more popular and I did not use it very much but it is still a nice camera to have and holds much sentimental value.

My first digital camera was an Olympus C-860L 1.3 megapixel which I still have and that was shortly followed by my Fujii Finepix S5500 4.3 megapixel which again I still have. The Fujii has been a very good camera and I still keep it handy for taking illustration reference photos.

Towards the end of 2011 my increased leaning towards photography resulted in purchasing a Nikon D7000 digital SLR. After the Fujii it was a steep learning curve to move away from only using the auto setting to using manual settings and adjustments on the Nikon.

As a visitor to my website I hope you will find something that you like and as time goes by I will be clicking away so that hopefully there will be some more interesting photos to come.
