Hi there, I'm Ian I'm 49 years old, though I don't think I'll ever fully grow up.
Most of my pictures, have been taken in and around the Northern Lower peninsular of Michigan, Mostly In Benzie county and the surrounding area. I'm now back in England on a permanent basis.
I welcome Comments and Constructive Sugestions.
I've been interested in Photography for probably 30 years, but only recently has it turned into a passion, I've always been interested in mechanical objects, and sometimes this has gotten me into trouble, my first camera was a kodak 126 insta-matic, which really belonged to my Dad, until the day I took it apart to see how it worked.
At a car boot sale (kinda like a huge multi family garage sale) I bought my First real camera, a Praktica BX20 35mm manual slr and a few lenses, and then I really got hooked, I still have that and it stil works, I take it out and play with it from time to time, I also Have a Praktica BMS.
My next camera was a Pentax ZX60, which broke (nothing to do with me, I didn't take this one apart), then I got a ZX50 (which still works and I feel is a better camera than the 60).
I also have a Pentax P3N.
I always said I'll never go digital I'll never go digital. but of course I did, though of course I still have and use my film camera's from time to time. I have a Pentax K20 dslr
I love Sunsets, playing with macro shots, wildlife and Bird photography, I also Love taking pictures of the local lighthouses. Pretty much I just love taking pictures, and my camera goes most places with me.
My Photographs are available as prints, 6x4, 5x7, or 8x10 Matted and framed or Just the print, contact me for more details.
Thankyou for looking,

"I've known Ian for several years now and have watched him grow as a photographer. He has taken some stunning shots of Northwest Michigan, and is very passionate about photography. I encourage you to spend some time going through his photo-stream where you'll find some beautiful images of Michigan's sunsets, lighthouses and, of course, Lake Michigan!"
