Got involved with photography some 25 years ago but gave up shortly after. Got back into it 4 years ago and it's now full speed ahead! I am very much a lover of nature so most of my photos are taken during my escapades from suburbia and where I can be at ease with myself and nature. All my images are shot in natural light in natural suroundings. Sometimes I move the odd twigg or leaf so I can have better access to my subject but otherwise my images are as natural as they can be. I use photoshop but I am not an expert at it so I restrict myself to just adjusting the contrast, light and cropping. I love travelling and experiencing diferent cultures and my last trip was in August 2008 and to my favourite country, Kenya. Thank you for stopping by and for your comments! Ross
