I’m a keen amateur photographer of trees, forests and treescapes. I work under the name of The Tree Photographer: www.thetreephotographer.com
Many of my images are available to purchase as prints via my page on PhotoCrowd. These are highest quality prints produced by specialist photographic printers, offering a global delivery service through a network of local providers. There are even options for framing, and prints will be delivered direct to you by the printer.
I occasionally sell prints and licence images for commercial use. If you have seen an image that you are interested in, please contact me.
About my Tree Photography
My images have been selected for various competitions and exhibitions including:
- Scottish Nature Photography Awards 2014 – shortlisted image
- FSC UK 2014 photography competition – shortlisted image
- Image selected for Woodland Trust card
Many of my images are also on 500px at www.500px.com/thetreephotographer
I shoot in micro four thirds format using Panasonic Lumix equipment. The small form of this format means it’s possible to carry a camera body and several lenses on a long trek, along with other hiking gear.
I always capture in RAW format and post-process my images using Adobe Lightroom.
I’m often asked what cameras, lenses and accessories I use. The following is a summary of the equipment that I’ve been using in the last few years.
- Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7
- Panasonic Lumix DMC-G3
- Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2
Lenses (x2 to compare with 35mm format):
- H-H014 (14mm / f2.5) – tiny wide angle pancake lens
- H-H020 (20mm / f1.7) – a wonderfully compact pancake lens, excellent in low light
- H-X025E Leica DG SUMMILUX (25mm / f1.4) – quality standard lens with beautiful bokeh
- H-F007014 (7-14mm / f4.0 zoom) – superwide zoom & probably my favourite lens
