Windows 10: Microsoft to reveal what was in secret operating system updates - The Independent
Microsoft is to finally break its silence on what is contained in secret Windows 10 updates. The company released the new operating system last year and has been regularly, and automatically, updating it ever since. But it has never said what exactly each of those updates contained. Now the company will list — and also give a list of all of the historical updates that have already been applied.

Introduction

An award-winning street photographer based in a small village in Derbyshire UK. With a varied career over 27 years working as a freelance photographer which has ranged from photojournalism to commissioned work and personal fine art projects.

Photography

With a professional background in photojournalism and a degree in art photography, his photographic voice has evolved to be a blend of traditional documentary, photojournalism and street photography, an approach which allows for the subjective interpretation of the story as an artist. He has a unique personal style that produces photographs full of drama, spontaneity and natural raw emotion.

Bushcraft and the Outdoors

I have been doing bushcraft and survival since I was a kid, I later joined the Royal Marines Commando’s and became a sniper and part of a surveillance team during the cold war.  It is here where I learnt to survive at a professional level, track down enemy snipers and special forces, and learnt escape and evasion, which I later became an instructor on specialist escape and evasion courses.

Since then I have been busy as my full time job is a photojournalist and documentary photographer, but I still keep my hand in on the bushcraft side as my photography job has always kept me considering the escape and evasion situation as the risks to media workers increase, as does the surveillance of journalists.  Often my camera bag has doubled as my bug out bag as its always with me. These skills have been passed on formally and informally to other photojournalists and media workers as well as private groups through structured training.

Gary has always loved the outdoors and being a lone wolf when it comes to bushcraft (although he may have his dog with him) and built his skills in survival at a professional level and now combines his skills in 30 years of professional photography as a photojournalist for ourdoor manufacturing and editorial companies
