Watching the sunset in Island Bay, Wellington
Freelance writer & fine art photographer
My interest in photography began when my parents bought me a Ricoh KR-10m camera over 20 years ago. Since that day I progressed from colour negative to slide and black and white film and finally to digital, when I bought my first digital SLR, an EOS 350D, in 2006. During that time I’ve taken photos in over 60 countries, studied for a degree in photography and worked as Technical Editor for EOS magazine. Now I’m a freelance writer and I make a living writing and publishing ebooks about photography. In recent years I’ve lived in the UK, China and New Zealand, which is now my home.
My photography ebooks
I have written twelve photography ebooks that I sell on my website. The aim is to help my readers become better photographers by teaching them how to master their camera settings, get to grips with the creative side of photography and process their photos with Lightroom.
Craft & Vision
I have also written nine photography ebooks for Craft & Vision. They have published my titles since April 2010 and sold tens of thousands of copies.
I have written one title for Peachpit’s Fuelbooks series. Click here to learn more about Exposure and Understanding the Histogram.
Digital Photography School
I’m a staff writer for Digital Photography School and have written over 100 articles for the website. Click the link to read my articles. New ones are added nearly every week.
