My parents bought me my first camera, way way back in the mists of time. It was a little Kodak Instamatic 33 film camera.  It had three settings - sunny, not sunny, and flash.  Things were much simpler back then! 


I've always had a camera (or cameras) since then, and I was an early adopter of the early digital cameras when they first started to appear in the late 1990s. I know that by 2001 I was using a Kodak DX3600, because the metadata is still recognised by Adobe Lightroom when I look back at my images from that year, but I have a whole year of images from 2000, where the metadata does not reveal the camera they were taken with!

I am currently shooting with a Fuji X-T3 and Nikon Z6, and also with a Mavic 2 Pro drone.

Previously I’ve owned various Nikons including the D800, D700, D90, D3S, D70, D60, and D40.

Prior to the Fuji X-T3 I owned the X-T2 and prior to that the X-T10 and (briefly) the X100.

I’ve found the Fuji X-series to be a fantastic light system for travel - with the Nikon Z6 not far behind in terms of portability.

I love shooting landscapes and the beautiful Donegal landscape in particular.
