Roger Chapman
A little about me

Hello my name is Roger Chapman, aka ‘chapperzz‘ to those who know me well.

I have been a photographer for as long as I can remember. I have vague memories of lying in fields of bracken in the middle of the Welsh mountains trying to capture Buzzard images on a tiny Halina film camera. Highly successful – NOT! I like to think my technique and equipment has progressed since then.

However, my enthusiasm for capturing birds in flight has not waned, (especially raptors.) I do love to photograph other genres as you will see if you take the time to browse my social channels, but my passion remains wildlife, birds in particular.

I am fairly advanced using digital darkroom tools such as Photoshop and Lightroom, but I prefer to get it right in camera.

I was a pro wedding photographer for some years but let it lapse due a demanding teaching career. However, this has come to an end and I find myself yearning for the challenge which only a live wedding can provide. Trying to prevent a mass migration to the nearest bar is like herding cats!

I am looking forward to passing on my knowledge and skills to others who are passionate about photography.

See you soon

Roger
