Our guest speaker last night turned out to be an enthusiastic, adventurous, skilful and intuitive photographer.
Quite clearly from his early life in Wiltshire he loves the open air and the brilliance of the countryside and its landscapes. His enthusiasm has led him from serious BMX bike riding, skateboarding, skiing, mountain biking and adventure in order to find the picture he has dreamt about.
Through his natural ability his images, capturing his early pastimes, caused him to be talent spotted by Panasonic and his love of smaller, but technically sound, cameras have seen his career leap forward. We were able to share his all-action bike “gymnastics” shots through to lonely waterfalls, calm reflective water, mountain ponies always remembering the early and late golden hours.
Jim does not restrict his great gifts to any one area and he revealed stunning images of astrophotography especially the Milky Way from Nash Point, the Northern Lights from the Lofoten archipelago using the Lumax S1R and a new range of filters from the up and coming manufacturer Case. Driven to be in the isolated places he has undergone adventures visiting Scottish Bothies as well as taking his own accommodation either on foot or mountain bike, and particularly relishing his first freshly ground coffee every morning – as he says “…..freeing the mind…..”.
Bringing himself through to all media forms his group have now created a Podcast Library – Talking Shot Podcasts – we particularly recommend “I wish I had taken that”
