Thanks for stopping by. My name is Steve Thomas and I am a keen amateur landscape photographer. I have always had a passion for photography and bought my first proper film SLR camera when I was 16. I still have that camera, a Yashica FR II some 40 years later but it is rarely used now that I have switched to digital. In the early days I dabbled with film and slide film and even invested in a Bronica 6x6 medium film camera but work and life commitments restricted my hobby to just holidays and weekends. It’s only in the last few years, since I retired from working as a flood risk engineer, that I’ve truly pursued my passion for photography and produced work which I am happy to hang on my wall.

Most of the images on my website were taken in Suffolk in Norfolk but I have recently moved to rural Herefordshire and I am keen to explore the rolling hills of this county and venture further afield into Wales. However as East Anglia offers so much diversity to the landscape photographer I am sure I will return on a regular basis.

I have always been a Canon shooter. The camera after the Yashica was the Canon A1 and other Canon film cameras followed until I switched to digital with the Canon EOS 10D. At the moment I’m using the Canon EOS 5DS which does everything I need at the moment.

If you browse through the images on my website you will probably notice that I favour the 1x1 aspect ratio or square crop. I think this goes back to my film days, especially shooting with the Bronica and by being influenced by photography books at that time. Many landscape photographers were using medium format film cameras such as the Bronica, Pentax and Mamiya and I remember being particularly inspired by Charlie Waites’ work with a 6x6 Hasselblad.
