Scots have always been well known for traveling overseas to remote and far-flung places of the globe and I guess this has a lot to do with the weather we have in Scotland. I am no different and have certainly enjoyed my 25 years or more overseas. I arrived in Asia in 1984 fell in love with the region, and have been based here ever since apart from a year in Houston and a 4 year hitch in Dubai. I have lived in Singapore on two separate occasions and now happily settled in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
I have always been a keen photographer ever since I was about 10 when my great aunt gave me a Box Brownie camera. I did a fair bit of film photography for many years with a Canon EOS 620 but sometimes disappointed with the final processed prints or slides .... always blamed that on the processing lab of course! My interest was rekindled in photography when the new digital SLR cameras made their debut and I spotted one in Dubai realising I could use all my existing lenses.
My first digital SLR was a Canon D30 camera which was a 3.1 megapixel camera. I guess in those days this was state-of-the-art, but it did produce some pretty good images considering what we would now regard as a low resolution camera. Committed to the Canon products, by virtue of the investment in lenses, I then upgraded to the 10D and subsequently to the 5D and 5D MkII. I have to say that I have been very impressed by the quality, robustness and reliability of the Canon products and plan to stick with them. A full list of my current camera equipment is listed in my Camera Gear page.
