Puffin Portrait



As if the trip to Skomer Island wasn’t fantastic enough, I met a pretty cool guy and fantastic photographer, Pete Downing, with his lovely wife Joss. He gave me the once in a lifetime opportunity to mount my camera to what he calls ‚his midlife-crisis lens‘, a Canon EF 800mm f/5.6. Apart from the fact that it made my camera look like a kids toy, it was a fantastic experience to shoot with such an high quality but expensive piece of glass. Why don’t you risk an eye on his website ?


Note to self: Expensive gear doesn’t make you a better photographer - it needs a lot of experience and a good amount of talent. Pete surely has it both!
