I like capturing what I see, using whatever camera, pencil or pen I have in that moment.
It-is-what-it-is, a moment played out. My photographic and drawing diary.

Me 1972-2004

This is a list of books that have helped me with my photography and drawing:
The Backpacker's Photography Handbook by Charles Campbell.
Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson.
Exposure by Chris Weston.
Simple Art of Black & White Photography by Lee Frost.
The Genius of Photography - How photography has changed our lives by Gerry Badger (BBC Books)
Mindfulness & the Art of Drawing by Wendy Ann Greenhalgh.
Sketch! The non-artist's guide to inspiration, technique, and drawing daily life by France Bellevilk-Van Stone.

To inspire me I have a few National Geographic Books. PHOTOGRAPHS Then & Now, The Life of a Photograph by Sam Abeli and one just called: The PHOTOGRAPHS. Also Photography Field Guide, Secrets to making great pictures. This is an old book mainly talking about film camaras but techniques don't change. It has some great stories at the back about National Geographic photographers. Used copies on Amazon £3/4, bargain.
NG Photographs

"It is the photogapher, not just his camera, that catches the moment". Gilbert M. Grosvenor President & Chairman, National Geographic Society.

Not forgetting The English Artist John Constable for his landscapes and wonderful perfect clouds.

    "hoxtonboy has such a good eye for composition, lighting, framing - the whole thing really. He's taught me so much about photography, but even so, we can be standing next to each other, taking pictures of the same scene - he takes one that turns out to be a gem, I take ten, all of which are pants.
    Oh, and on top of all this, he's a fabulous husband!"
