In recent years I have become "involved' with a group of enthusiastic amateur photographers in the The Kapiti Camera Club. They have supported me in my endeavours and have given me the opportunity to improve my abilities in capturing and showing off my images.
I am a subscriber to the Flickr Web site (under the pen name of Ynos850) which has been instrumental to the thrill of seeing my "work" on the Internet and allowing me to gain a wider audience for my craft.
In 2009 I was fortunate to win some accolades when I was named New Zealand Wildlife Photographer of the Year by the New Zealand Geographic Magazine, which led to my five minutes of fame amongst the world of photography. My "winning" photograph can be seen here.
Please feel free to explore enjoy the images and get in touch - your feedback is very welcome.
