Story

Nature Photographer
Introduction

I am a retired Scuba Diving and Karate instructor. But I am still a very active and dedicated all round nature photographer owner of  www.trueportraits.com 

I am also an avid Paintographer. I have an uncontrollable passion for using a little artistry / paintography in post processing my photographs. Photography is a passion that I have embraced whole heartedly since I first started taking photos in the year 2000. I have not taken any photography courses but I have read a lot of photo ebooks and watched a lot of YouTube photography videos and I take a lot of pictures.

I am also curator for some G+ Daily Photo Themes you are welcome to join in post your best shots and have fun.
