Hello. I'm Jack Hope, an amateur photographer from Stafford. Welcome to my website. I've been taking photographs for around 5 years now, using a range of equipment. My current kit consists of a Pentax K50 body, with 18-135mm and 50-300mm lenses.
Last year, I began to shoot in RAW and use Adobe Photoshop Lightroom (and more recently Photoshop) to edit my photographs, and since then, my love and passion for photography has grown continuously - I LOVE TAKING PICTURES! To be in, and capture, the moment forever is, for me, something very special, and I thoroughly enjoy taking every single photograph - thats not to say editing is always the most thrilling task!

I most like to photograph trains (you'd never have guessed...!), landscapes and sunsets, though I try to keep my work varied.
So now that I've been taking photographs and editing them 'properly' for around a year or so, I decided that I should create a website. Both to share my photographs with the world, and to create a home for my images that would be much more pleasurable for me and others to look through than the endless photostream I've got on Flickr. That said, it's going to take me some time to move everything here, and I will keep on uploading all of my photos to Flickr too.
So please, enjoy - and let me know if there's anything you'd like to see!
