ABOUT ME

I love photography, web design and getting stuff done

Michael Gaylard


I am a beautiful swan

Welcome to my website. I am an amateur photographer living in West Sussex, England.

Some years ago a trip to visit friends in Abu Dhabi rekindled an interest in photography and I started taking what I realised later were just holiday snapshots.

At the time I could not afford much in the way of a camera, it was a Fuji digital bridge camera something or other and whilst it served its purpose I grew bored with its limitations.

These days my kitbag needs to be sorted out for each day as it has grown somewhat.

As for the day job?

I have spent the last 35 years or so in a number of IT related roles ending up as an SQL Data Developer - so databases. All that came to an end at the end of October 2021 when I took early retirement.

These are the things I most enjoy :
