If I say so myself it's been a good year for photography. not least because of my collaborations with m nephew Tim and his best friend Li Winter. Both are excellent models and they have taught me an awful lot about portraiture, something I had never taken seriously before.

My usual subjects, flowers and insects have taken rather a back seat but this is perhaps no bad thing. My landscape photography has not improved. Sadly it is still as poor as ever....

It has been a good year for your photography and I think it likely true that most good photographers do tend to specialize.

Why thank you Susan!

You have worked very hard this year, and you have a splendid portfolio, Jams. Congratulations to you, and to all your models.

Warm wishes for the Holiday Season. All the best to you and family. Always!

You work on your portraiture has been excellent. It is an area I do not cover at all apart from self portraits from time to time.

As Claude said, you now have a great portfolio.
