Amateur Photographer

Sometimes we need a break from the daily grind. Amateurs take photographs too and my photography blog offers something different than other photography blogs — I try and  provide inspiration for anyone who enjoys taking pictures.

My name is Paul Newbery I am an amateur photographer in Oxfordshire. When I was 12, I became serious about photography. I love getting outside to photograph a landscape or a moody seascape. This website has images from my ongoing amateur photography journey.
