    Biography: I've been into photography since 2002, when I started playing around with my dad's FujiFilm camera for more than just family photos, and I started uploading rubbishy "but arty" shots onto deviantArt. Then I found DPC. I started improving a lot, and meeting many great people! It came to a time when the automatic nature of the FinePix was limiting my photography, and 3 very good friends from DPC kindly donated me some money to put towards my first proper manual digital camera, a Canon Powershot G2.

    I improved a lot with this camera, and it won me my first and second ribbons on DPC. Whilst DPC was originally all I shot for, I then had interest from a local band who I started doing the official photographs and website for. This gave me some "fame" around the small town I live in, which was then increased when I won a national photography competition set up by the BBC and Wellcome Trust. I came 1st place in the adult category (despite being a baby-faced 16 at the time!) and my photo was displayed in the Royal Albert Hall in London. My prize was £1000 worth of photography equipment, so naturally I gravitated towards where I am now... DSLRs!

    At the time there was only 1 budget DSLR out, the EOS-300D Rebel, so I bought that and a couple of lenses, and have slowly been expanding my kit bag ever since. I've won 2 ribbons with the 300D, and one with my little Sony DSC-T1 (Which I also won in a national competition, along with a Nokia N-Gage, a Panasonic Portable DVD Player, and an iPod, woot!).

    If you like the look of any of my photos, lots of them are available as prints from here! If the photo you like doesn't have a print available, just e-mail me and I'll see what I can do.
