I suspect that I am known as mainly a wildlife photographer, but I have been known to take photos of non-nature subjects as well !
Well, what can I say? I take photos and have been doing so for a long time. Once upon a time I used to have access to a darkroom where I developed and printed my own black & white images as well as taking photos on slide film (I’m sure some of you remember B&W images and slide film?).

I suspect that I am known as mainly a wildlife photographer, but I have been known to take photos of non-nature subjects as well. It is just that I mainly take wildlife/nature photos as I am a tourist guide, spending time mainly in game reserves when on tour.

I also wonder. I wonder sometimes why some judges will look at, say a photo of a bird, and find it is sharp, well-exposed, perfectly composed, but “the bird isn’t doing anything”, so will mark it down. At the same meeting, the same judge will look at a photo of, say a flower, and find it is sharp, well-exposed and perfectly composed and will give it a good mark. In my humble opinion, the flower also “isn’t doing anything” and nine times out of ten, the author has control over the subject, unlike in true wild-life photography where you have no control over your subjects and have to rely on luck and a large dose of patience, and so I wonder...

My Camera Bag:

In my camera bag, I have a humble Nikon D90 camera body, a Nikon AF VR-Nikkor 80-400mm 4.5 - 5.6 Lens and a Nikon AF-S Nikkor 18-135mm 3.5 - 5.6 ED lens. That’s it! If anyone wants to donate to my new camera fund, please contact me to donate generously
