I am a 43-year-old amateur photographer from Chester, Cheshire UK. I took up digital photograpy a couple of years ago after hitting 40. See it as my mid-life crisis. Unfortunately, unlike, say, forming a band, having a tattoo or buying a motorcycle I have come to realise that the particular hobby I have chosen as a means to escape the drudgery of the day job is probably one of the most expensive. On May 12th 2009 I spent a marvellous informative day with professional photographer Stewart Randall. This has prompted me to take my photography more seriously and, although I don’t expect it to lead to a career change, maybe sell or license some of my images so that I can fund my hobby. I hope you like the images I post and please feel free to comment. All constructive criticism is welcomed. This blog will document my attempts to get to grips with the digital medium and see if I can get some wider recognition for my images.
All my images are copyright Mark Nelson. To steal any of them would be very rude. Please contact me if you would like to license any of my images. Similarly, my images are available for publication. Please contact me by leaving a comment or via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
I now have a simple website up and running. Please use the contact form here if you would like to purchase a print or enquire about commercial photography
