Helpful Hints and Tips

Helpful Hints and Tips

When I started my career in photography there was one person in particular who really pointed me in the right direction, giving me the best advice they could and making me the photographer I am today. What I would like to do in this section is give you the benefit of my knowledge, the lessons I’ve learned over the last 10 years and hopefully these helpful hints will improve your photography. I will continually add sections to build up a comprehensive beginners guide to nature photography, photo editing and camera technique. Please click on an article below to open it in full.
In this section I will continue adding articles and tutorials about all things photography related. It's a work in progress and I'll upload new content when I can. If there's a tutorial you'd like to see me do, send me an email via the contact form above.
