The Photographer

J Clark“Hello, my name’s Jonathan Clark and, until recently, I was an IT analyst/programmer in a large aerospace company.

“Photography has been part of my life from a very early age when my parents bought me my first Kodak Instamatic 126 but since being diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, it’s become a life-saver.

“It is a hobby, which is endlessly rewarding without requiring a great deal of energy or travel.

“My 7DayShop kitbag consists mostly of memory cards and batteries but also the recent addition of your excellent Travel-Pro Tripod; a very clever device!”

The photographer is based in Northern Ireland, and for these photos used a Canon EOS 350D or EOS 70D with various focal lenses.
