About me

I've been heavily influenced by Glen E Friedman in the last few years...especially with the release of 'dogtown and Z-boys'.
I like to capture the essence of a moment..especially when it comes down to extreme sport photography...there's something gripping and captivating about the level of adrenaline a photo can convey.
When i get bored I find myself experimenting with digital manipulation - colours and perception mainly.
I'm now studying photography as a full time student at university...unfortunately they've kicked me back into the stone age with film and darkrooms!
i know i need ot know this stuff but its so time consuming and to some extent risky - i like to know what i have when i have it!

my equipment:

Canon 10D + Battery grip
Tamron 28-35mm
Canon 35 - 80mm
Canon 80 - 200mm
Sigma 50 - 500mm

Kodak 6490

Bronica SQAm 6 x 6

...and soon i'll have a shiny new Canon 5D :D

    lol, no... i didnt realize thats what it was. I'm more into random closeups, nature, and some portraits.

    Hey Chris...

    Thanx for the message :-) ... LOL i know everyone says that about the top right hand corner of my gull pic... but i think in this day and age it's nice to sometimes not have digitally enhanced pics. My daughter did photoshop it for me at one stage.
