More about Sioux
Having had an interest in photography for many years, I purchased my first film camera at the tender age of 11, for the very grand amount of R0.99c! I graduated to a Yashica 35mm as a 21st birthday gift from my Dad; years later purchased a Nikon FG 35mm SLR. With the onset of the digital age, came an Olympus common-garden-type muk ‘n druk (point & shoot). For my 50th, Paul decided a Canon 400D DSLR would be an ideal gift and how right he was! The bug bit all over again, my fun with a camera started a long time ago and shows no signs of abating! I have since upgraded to a Canon 550D and 600D, which although not top of the range, mostly give me the images I imagined.
My favourite subjects? Anything that can be photographed and provide a good / interesting / beautiful / funny image! I love shooting wildlife, and enjoy the challenge of land & seascapes. Buildings, especially doors and windows also tend to grab my attention. Macro photography is fun as you see a world that normally passes by “underfoot”.
I test out various scenarios, sometimes just clicking away madly, other times actually planning a shot, usually coming up with a fairly favourable result.
My travelling & photography partner, Paul, also has more than just a passing interest in photography, also spanning a few years. Together, we have traveled to some interesting places, sometimes only an hour or 2’s drive away from home, others a day’s flight away. Where ever we go, our cameras & lenses tend to weigh more than our luggage! This site is a combination of our photos.
All in all, our photography is a passion shared, a world explored, a journey enjoyed.
These links will take you to yet more of my images, and also books that I have published along the way.
