About Me

  • Purpleport - I joined Purpleport in July 2016 and am a very enthusiastic (hobby) photographer.   I like creating 'unusual' photos but until recently have not had time to create many. 
  • Photography - I have been a member of my local Camera Club for quite a few years and have taken part in quite a few club organised model shoots over the years as well as a few shoots for friends with very good results.  I found I enjoy photographing models - the challenge of directing them as to what I want to achieve in the photo and getting the desired results is a real pleasure.
  • Equipment - As well as several cameras, a variety of lenses and flashguns, I have my own studio lights and general accessories, and can create a small (but limited) studio at home or elsewhere.
  • Mike, the person - I am retired so have plenty of time and now starting to find more time for photography (at last!).  I generally aim for at least one shoot per month.  I have a GSOH (Good Sense Of Humour), always look on the bright side, believe in punctuality, am a happy, chatty, and friendly guy who has worked with charity volunteers for many years so am polite and diplomatic and hence (hopefully!) easy to get on with :-)

My general Portfolio

I am getting more pictures in my Portfolio on here (~450 at the moment) but stick to displaying somewhere between 50 to 100 with the rest in Albums further down the page! I have been using flickr since 2011 and have >450 images there so if wanting to see more of my work, take a look at my My Flickr site.

Post processing

I use both Adobe Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC for post-processing of any photos taken and am learning all the time how to get more from those packages.

Note: ALL preliminary Bookings/Correspondence must be through this Purpleport website - I've read a lot of the Purpleport Articles and understand the reasons!  ;-)  You know it makes sense.  The reasoning is explained very well in this Purpleport Article.

Thanks for reading and I hope we can work together at some time.  ;-)
