Started with photography at my 21st birthday with a Kodak Retinette 1A that was given to me.


Worked with Ektachrome colour slide material and was developing it myself at home. I learnt how to ASA (now ISO) of the film, experimentally to 6400 ASA.


Joined Waverly Camera Club. Finally up-graded to a Minolta SRT-10 with a Tamron 80 – 250 f3.5 lens.


I used Kodak Ektachrome X film and finally processing myself over the kitchen sink.

Entered exhibitions and had some acceptances.

Over the years I have photographed weddings, funerals, child, baby and adult portraits, landscapes and just about anything that happened to get in front of my camera lens.


Since the digital age of photography developed, I became proficient with the Photoshop CS range settling on the CS5 and the full Topaz suite of plug-ins. I also just love playing around with ProShow Gold having created many slide shows of my images and some for inter-club competitions.


In 2010, I won $850 worth of camera gear from an online photo competition in Canada. In 2014 was one of 5 finalists in the Daily Telegraph “Champions of the West” competition winning Harvey Norman voucher for $500 and a presentation dinner with my wife at Rooty Hill RSL in the presence of our Prime Minister Mr. Tony Abbott.


A past webmaster and competition secretary of Blacktown City Photographic Club.

Accepted by FCC (Federation of Camera Clubs in NSW) as a photographic judge.

This site is the start of some 5500 images of mine, mostly all from the digital era. This site will not hold them all so I will put some links on here to the other sites as I create them.

I hope you enjoy them and would appreciate some feedback if possible
