Free Images[edit]

I've decided to put up a listing of the images I've made for Wikipedia, or obtained consent for use on Wikipedia, much as User:Videmus Omnia used to have a page listing what he got. This isn't everything, just what I consider to be the coolest shots.

Note that I'm not putting any of the Luke Ford images here since there's just too damn many of them - as of July 22, 2008, the Category:Photographs by Luke Ford listing on Commons ran to 1,369 files. (Update: as of May 15, 2011 this category now runs to 9,283 images and is still growing as all of Luke's photos get uploaded to Commons).

And side note: Videmus did up an excellent page with advise on how to obtain free use images. Fortunately, it got rescued when Videmus left and can be found here.

Own work[edit]

Done over the years and with a variety of cameras ranging from a tiny Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ3 point'n'shoot to my latest, a Canon EOS 70D... steadily getting better at it!

A full list can be found here.
