This needs an update as I am back in the UK.
Having a large number of Oman negatives that still require scanning, I will leave it for now; it gives some background information about my photography.
An electronics engineer who has an interest in the early history of Oman: exploring the more remote regions of the country (for that read where tourists fear to go) mostly on foot! using nothing more than early Ordinance Survey maps for navigation. They are very good for showing the old footpaths. I have found GPS & more recently Google Earth indispensable for planning expeditions, but neither is a substitute for a good detailed map. No one should venture into the wilderness without a map & compass and an understanding of basic navigational skills.
I use mostly film cameras and do all my own developing and printing in a traditional darkroom. Recently started using a Nikon D200/D800 for the colour work. Never thought I would go over to the dark-side but needs must with the lack of C41/E6 chemicals here in Muscat.
If you would like to use any of the photographs – please contact me at:
I will probably say yes and may even be able to supply a better quality file or even a print.
Thank you for visiting my site and I hope you enjoyed looking at some of the photographs I have made.
