About Me

My photo
Flint, North Wales, United Kingdom
The business of photography has become tougher every year and this is not just down to the financial crisis. Everyone now considers themselves a photographer, even though they have no idea of the market they are dabbling in. This has destroyed business for the professionals and many can not survive and make an honest living. I have reverted to taking images for myself only and have to tend to a day job in order to continue my photography. This is the space I share my images, gripes and experiences.

Scanning Done!

I have finally finished scanning the latest batch of images. I can tell you that I am sick and tired of sitting at the computer now. I am a photographer, not a computer operator. I hope that in future I ill be able to farm the scanning out to others... its soooo boring.

So, now that I am done I have to look at each image and edit what is good and chuck what is bad. That will also take ages...
I am not doing that again. I left it far too long to develop films. I racked up 28 rolls of 35mm and 8 rolls of medium format. That is just too much!

Dog Handler in Iraq 2008
(Edited, not retouched)
One of many Dog Handlers of the British Army that risked life and limb of his dog and himself in order to provide security to his comrades and the people of Iraq. He never questioned why he was sent there, nor did he take sides in a conflict that was understood to be of questionable legality from the onset. What counts is that both pictured above returned safely after contributing to one of history's events in this world.

Watering Time! 2008
A military Working Dog of the British Armed Forces being offered water during the hottest time of the day in the area of Basra, Iraq. Daytime temperatures during November may reach up to 40 degrees Celsius. Cool water can be a life safer for man and canine.

Crash in North Wales! 2007
Excessive speed and wet roads turn into a recipe for disaster when not respected in traffic.
