Victor Walton is probably the biggest influence on my photographic journey to date, his work is quite literally amazing. He has taken and shared a wealth of brilliant images, of varied subjects with a massive selection of techniques. Now the thing is, a lot of people do ! But not many of them are so willing and so happy to share what they know.

For some unknown reason, many photographers treat their skills like some long handed down secret, as though their skills are totally unique and should remain that way. God forbid that some......beginner or someone with just an entry level DSLR should be enlightened with this sacred knowledge.
Not Victor, whatever I have asked him, he has never failed to give me a clear and detailed explanation of the how, when ,where he took an image, and tips to avoid making any mistakes he did.
On top of his masterful photography and ever developing Post Processing skills he is also a skilled engineer, embarking on DIY projects well beyond the skills of most of us. I don't know many people who can build there own studio flash from scavenged junk !
So Check out his Flickr Stream and see for yourselves, or pop across to his Blog http://www.theinvertedimage.com/ where he offers advice an techniques that are very enjoyable.
Victor is almost entirely responsible for me deciding to move towards strobism in my photography, and has supported me and offered advice along the way, so for that I owe him a huge amount of gratitude. Thats the whole reason I'm blogging about him, to say thanks, and to share his great work with others.
