About my landscape photography.
I have travelled in various countries and I always take my camera with me. The light is often very different, depending on the time of day or the closeness to the sea. Different cultures fascinate me. These are really only my holiday snaps, but they are all very precious to me.
For those who are interested in photography – how to clean a lens:
The care of your lenses is important, but cleaning your lenses could be even more harmful to your photography than just leaving it dirty. Your lens is a very delicate piece of machinery and does not need to be cleaned that often -only when it is noticeably dirty. These are a few tips to avoid damaging your lenses as you clean them. If you are very careful, you should not have any problems with damage. The right lens cleaning equipment can be purchased in most camera shops, or on the internet. It does not require much and lens cleaning supplies are quite inexpensive, do make sure to keep them handy in your camera bag.
But it’s not only your lenses that need to be cleaned – don’t forget your muddy camera bag and tripod – you wouldn’t want a dirty tripod leg to brush against a brides crisp white wedding dress now would you!
Your own appearance is important to – not only must you keep your equipment looking professional but you must present yourself well to be taken seriously. I wear a smart well fitted suit with a tag saying ‘Photographer’ I wear black shoes and black socks and a nice colourful shirt – but nothing to stand out too much. I tie my hair back and have quite natural make-up. I also expect my assistants to be presented in a similar fashion.
