Ian McKenzie has been passionate about photography for well over a half-century. He had his first 120 format film camera at the ageof ten when he and his family left Australia to spend a year in India and Pakistan.Later he obtained a second-hand twin reflex Rolleicord camera which had belonged to his father after his father had upgraded.
His first 35mm film camera was a Nikon which he purchased in 1976 prior to leaving for a trip to north America. With few exceptions he has used Nikons ever since. His latest acquisition being a Nikon D800.
Photography has never been his full-time job, but has always been his passion. Now, being semi-retired he is able to spend more time enjoying it.
Many nights in years gone by were spent in his makeshift darkroom in the bathroom watching his enlarged prints magically appear in the developing trays.
With digital technology and software currently available, few photographers spend time with chemicals and darkrooms. Great results can be obtained at a far greater speed, and less expense.
Details of books published by Ian McKenzie can be obtained from his web site.

Tony goes beyond teaching you how to use Lightroom. Tony shows you why and when to use each feature to create stunning, natural photos. When Lightroom isn t the best tool, Tony suggests better alternatives.
Combining the benefits of video training and book learning, this video book gives you over 14 hours of video and dozens of free presets and raw images to practice with. If you learn better with video, watch the video training and refer to the book for quick reference. If you prefer reading, the book is concise and practical, and each chapter links to relevant videos when you want to understand a topic more deeply or see it used in the real world.
Tony covers every aspect of Lightroom in-depth, but structures his teaching so that both beginner and advanced photographers can learn as efficiently as possible. If you just want a quick start, you can watch the first video or read the first chapter and you'll be organizing and editing your pictures in less than an hour. If you want to know more about a specific feature, switch to that video or jump to that chapter in the ebook. If you want to know everything about Lightroom, watch the videos and read the book from start to finish.
