About

Hello there, and thank you visiting. I'm a UK-based photographer, currently located in south east of England. I'm interested in many aspects of photography, although in particular, I enjoy combining it with my lifelong interest in aviation. The result is aviation photography and within this website you'll find a selection of photos that I've taken during recent years.

The photos are all held in an online database which currently comprises 1745 entries, and can searched using the Photo Search page. The newest photo in the database is shown to the left here, though to browse more of the latest photos, simply take a look at the Latest Photos page. Or if you aren't looking for anything in particular, check out some of the galleries in the Photo Galleries section.

I have been photographing aviation since the mid 1990s and publishing my photos online since 1998, progressing though a series of Minolta and Nikon film SLR setups and being fortunate enough to visit many locations around the world, ranging from Stansted to Sydney to San Francisco! During the years 2000 to 2004 I shot Kodachrome and Fujichrome slides, and I have a moderate collection of a couple of thousand colour transparencies.

I am now an all digital photographer and currently use a Nikon D80 digital SLR. On the lens front I use two Nikkor lenses, giving me coverage between 18mm to 300mm, digital effective 27mm to 450mm.

Although I enjoying photographing aircraft simply to add to my personal collection, it has also been a pleasure to receive requests from visitors for prints of photos, and from commercial viewers wishing to publish photos. Should you be interested in acquiring or using a photo yourself, please check out the respective Buy a Photo and Commercial pages where you'll find more information.

I hope that you enjoy browsing this site; I try to add new shots as often as possible so do check back for new photos again soon. If there's a particular shot that you're looking for, or maybe you just want to say hello, then do get in touch with me. Or to keep in touch with the latest news and photos, please visit the Stay Updated page where you'll find more information.

Viewing this website

This website has been tested with a variety of different browsers, on both PCs and Macs. Although there are no alarming discrepancies between how it displays between different browsers and operating systems, here are a few helpful tips on viewing this website as its best -

Screen Resolution - This website is designed to fill the screen at 1024x768 resolution, but looks even better at higher resolutions. Something in the region of 1280x1024 is highly recommended. To change the screen resolution on a PC, right-click your desktop and click Properties > Settings > Screen resolution and adjust the slider as desired. I'm afraid those still viewing at 800x600 (why?) will need to make good use of those scroll bars!

Font - This website is designed for the Lucida Grande font, so synonymous these days with Apple. As such, Mac users should have Lucida Grande installed on their machine by default, though Windows users are not quite so fortunate. In the absence of Lucida Grande, this website defaults to Lucida Sans (a similar font), or as a last resort, to Tahoma or Arial. Note - Windows users can obtain a copy of Lucida Grande by downloading Safari for PC, and grabbing the two .ttf files out of the Safari.resources folder.

Browsers - This website displays well in the latest versions of most browsers, though visitors still using Internet Explorer 6 (or earlier) will need to upgrade in order for the site's CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) content to display correctly. Sadly, Internet Explorer has notoriously poor support for CSS and other web technologies, and as such, I highly recommend using another browser such as Firefox or Opera instead!
