So I was walking along the seafront at Paignton and I spotted these kids larking around in a shelter. I figured they'd never even notice me so I lifted my camera to my face and bang! They all spotted me. So busted.

Buggeringabout.com is my relatively new blogging site. There's only a couple of articles on there but I'll be building on it. The most recent is a piece about managing and keeping track of exports in a publishing service kind of way. It also comes with a free plugin.

Mac. Possibly working on Mac but untested. Anyone gets it working I'll update the article with a credit.
Lightroom's Publishing Services are great for posting to sites like Flickr or portfolio sites where you can re-upload changed images after the initial post but other sites like Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest where posts are subsequently unchangeable make less sense for a Publishing Service The

Thanks Eddie, that's appreciated. It's taken a while but I think it's finally starting to get there.

Story
Tagline
Photographer | Dog Shouterer.
Introduction
    I studied Photography 1975-78 at the London College of Printing in, um, London, spent 5 or 6 years as a freelance photographer - magazines, musicians - and assistant film director -  music videos - before getting the computer bug which dumped me firmly into a fledgling TV computer graphics industry.

    I worked for nearly 30 years in CGI as a computer animator, Digital FX artist, Technical Director in TV and the movies. Built, owned and ran a fairly successful CG facility in Central London for about 10 years before leaving that in someone else's hands and moving on to other things.

    Then I had a blast for a good few years freelancing around the world helping people make animated CG stuff for film and TV until clients'' need for too much work in too little time  for too little money became too much to bear and I quit work and moved to the country.

    I now live in Torquay, S. Devon (UK) where I've re-discovered my love of photography, newly discovered the very beautiful coastal landscapes we have in this part of the world and having a damn good stab at getting my work out to a wider audience. I sail a fair bit too; small, fast racing dinghies.

If you like what you see here, please follow and please, please share. Thank you.

Bragging rights
I once sailed across the Atlantic in a 65 foot wooden yacht.
