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 about photography. In recent years I’ve lived in the UK, China and New Zealand, which is now my home. My clients include EOS magazine, Craft & Vision, Digital Photography School and Focal Press.
My photography eBooks
At the end of 2011 I started publishing photography eBooks on my own website. Most of the titles are Canon specific, written for owners of EOS cameras. I’ve built upon my experience working for EOS magazine and years using Canon cameras to create a unique resource. Find out more and see the collection here.
Craft & Vision
I write photography eBooks for Craft & Vision. They have published my eBooks since April 2010 and sold tens of thousands of copies.
The concept behind Craft & Vision is brilliantly simple. High quality photography eBooks at an unbelievably low price. For less than the price of most photography magazines, you get an eBook written by a master photographer. And I’m proud that my photography eBooks are available alongside those of authors like David duChemin, Michael Frye and Piet Van den Eynde. You can see my Craft & Vision eBooks here.
As a writer for EOS magazine my job is to research and write detailed articles about the Canon EOS camera system. The magazine is unique because we write in-depth pieces based on a sound knowledge of EOS cameras. The articles are illustrated by photos taken with EOS cameras. We don’t assume that our readers have the latest camera models either – our magazine is just as relevant whether you have an EOS 300D or an EOS 7D.
EOS magazine is different from other photography magazines because we specialise in writing about just one camera system. We don’t dumb down and we realise that while our readership ranges from near beginners to professional photographers, the bulk of our readership are experienced photographers with many years of experience. Our aim is to show you how to get the best out of your EOS camera and take better photos with it.
