Intro: Hi there,

Whilst I have always been keen on taking snaps, over the last couple of years, I have really become inspired to look more at the type and style of photographic images I am taking.

I had a Kodak point-and-shoot digital camera but recently spent two weeks in Kenya and earlier this year decided that the cost of purchasing a Digital SLR could, in fact, be justified. After much (and I mean a LOT!) deliberation, I decided to go with Canon over Nikon and purchased a Eos 400D with a standard 18-55m lens. Knowing a good safari was also on the horizon, I also went for a Tamron 55-200mm lens and I am REALLY glad that I did.

During 2007, I set myself a target of taking 50 photos I was happy with each month. I remained focussed (no pun intended) and was successful in achieving this target - thanks in part to two stunning weeks in Kenya - and really gained a lot from the process. I enjoyed the challenge of it all, and came away with some great shots of architecture, wildlife, landscapes and the like.

For some more examples of the images I have taken, please have a look at Trek Earth (username being 'cooperknights') or my main website:

When it comes to my style of photography, I am happier in an abstract or land-/sea-scape field and would like to know what people think of the images that I have taken and am pleased with. I am not that confident with taking portraits (and the idea of doing wedding photography scares me silly!), but am keen to take on board any advice that fellow photographers can give.

Any comments - positive or constructive - would be welcome.
