Brian Valentine is a UK macro photographer who goes by the name LordV. A fan of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series, he first used Lord Vetinari as a handle, it was only later that he shortened it to LordV. He is an avid fish-keeper and gardener. It is here in his organically maintained garden where he takes most of his shots. LordV also likes to put-together his rigs by himself, mostly modified flash brackets and flash diffusers.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
