I am a Welsh hobby photographer based in County Meath, Ireland and enjoy shooting landscapes, woodland and seascapes. I mostly enjoy taking photos of my dog (#TripThomas).
I bought my DSLR in November 2016 a week or so before a trip to Vietnam and Cambodia; by the time I’d landed back in Ireland, I was completely aware of how little I knew or understood about photography. In early 2017, I began to take an active interest in improving my skills and took part in a half day workshop with a local professional who introduced me to filters and aperture mode. I have since joined Drogheda Photographic Club with the intention of further improving and pushing myself – and being pushed - onwards and upwards.
Generally, I use a basic Nikon DSLR camera with a variety Cokin filters which normally sit on top of a Vanguard Alta Pro 263 AB 100 (a super and wallet-friendly tripod) or when travelling further afield, a Manfrotto Pixi Evo-2 mini tripod (a decent travel option). Sometimes, I just take shots with my Huawei P20 mobile phone – it didn’t come with Tetris pre-loaded but the great camera (which includes a Leica lens) makes up for that oversight on Huawei’s part!
The purpose of this website is for me to showcase some of my favourite photos in the way I want to and not as set out by Instagram and Facebook. That said, my Instagram account is where the more recent images will be uploaded to and to a lesser extent Facebook (although I have a Flickr account, do not expect a lot of activity there).
Please note that all the photographs on this site are my own and are copyrighted accordingly. If you have any questions or feedback, please drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
