- The great photographers who inspire me have said:
The camera is a box that holds the film.
It's the lens and the photographer that do the work.

Although it only seems like a couple of weeks have passed since the end of the last football season, the teams are already back in pre-season training, and while pre-season friendly games are being played, the fans (and photographers) are looking forward to the 2011-12 season starting in a little over three weeks from now.
In this photo taken at the Brighton and Hove Albion vs Horsham pre-season match, a Horsham defender attempts to tackle (and hold!) Brighton striker Torbjorn Agdestein as he takes the the ball upfield.
I took the photos for Rod’s seventieth birthday celebration at their home near Totnes in Devon.
A great time was had by all – plenty of food and drink were on hand, and the birthday boy was serenaded by members of his family singing their own version of Gilbert & Sullivan.
Geoff has been asked to be the Wedding Photographer at Melissa and Dave‘s Wedding in 2013.
Brighton and Hove Albion has three Women’s Football Teams: the First Team, the Reserves and the Community Team. I was invited to the Teams’ Awards Presentation evening – so naturally I took my camera to photograph the proceedings. The players had signed a ‘Thank You’ card for me for taking game photos throughout the season, which was much appreciated!
