About Digital Photography Bureau

Hi, my name is Neil,

Welcome to Digital Photography Bureau.

I am probably very similar to you – someone enthusiastic about digital photography, who wants to improve his knowledge, skills and technique with the aim of improved end results.

There are many good ways to develop new skills - hard work, dedication, perseverence and repeated practice being the most paramount.

Nevertheless, taking guidance also plays a fundamental role and using the greater knowledge and experience of others can accelerate the learning process.

However, simply acquiring knowledge is not “learning” per se. And whilst having relevant information is better than not having it at all, a full CONCEPTUAL understanding is infinitely more useful.

In my own quest for a greater understanding of photography, I soon discovered countless resources for advice – many of which failed to explain the topic in a way I could instantly grasp or give me the depth of understanding I was looking for.

This site is my attempt to give you a “one- stop shop” for your information search.

I have attempted to provide

  • An alternative (but no less accurate) way of conveying digital photography information such that it will MAKE SENSE.
  • A logical structure for navigating the site, with each topic beginning with a summary of the key information you need to know, followed by a more detailed explanation – there to be used only if you need it.


This site does not pretend to take the place of personal tuition by a GOOD teacher. If your time, budget and location allows, there are many excellent photography courses and schools (including our very own PHOTOGRAPHY THEMED VACATIONS )

There are also many excellent books and DVD's available.

When the detailed explanation of a topic falls outside the scope of this site, I will offer a link to an alternative source that I believe provides the best and easiest to understand content.

Your feedback (positive AND negative), is always appreciated – and will form the basis for ongoing improvements to this site.
