Favourite sayings

Photography is a blend of art and science which involves four stages.

1.Seeing - an eye for a picture,      2 Taking - all aspects of camera craft
3. Making - post processing.     4. Presenting - the finished article.

I have studied photography seriously for over 40 years and digital imaging for 23 years and continue to do both. If ever I thought I had “arrived” or reached any sort of “standard” I would pack [it] in because what I would have reached was a plateau and would then probably be incapable of learning new things……I hope this never happens.
Leo Palmer

Amateurs are concerned with equipment, professionals are concerned with time,
masters are concerned with light

The only photographer you should compare yourself with was the one you were last year
