This book is primarily a collection of photographs and is not an official guidebook, but it is sincerely hoped that the photographs give pleasure and demonstrate a hopefully shared view of the beauty and memorable sights of this part of the world.
I have greatly enjoyed compiling this book because as well as providing me with a chance to showcase my photographs, it has required me to trawl though all the many shots taken during numerous visits and hence inevitably revisit in my mind all the sights, sounds, tastes and experiences encountered during those visits. Whilst it is therefore a rather self indulgent exercise, I hope you will have enjoyed the images. I also hope that the composition helped you to share my captivation of the Images of Italy.
I have always had an interest in photography and in trying to record events people and places by taking pictures with a camera. My formal training and qualifications have all been in Civil Engineering and notably transportation planning and engineering. As a chartered engineer with over 30 years experience in traffic engineering, transportation planning and highway design, I have lead teams dealing with those aspects of development projects throughout the UK and Ireland But the interest in photography could not be stifled by my work, and inevitably the desire to take photographs and to exhibit them became irresistible. Since August 2001 I have concentrated on turning my hobby, and a talent for photography, into a new career. I am proprietor of TJMServices of which tjmshots and terrymorganphotography are part. I am a member of the Royal Photographic Society. The photo "Italian Streetlife" is an exhibit in the 2009 RPS members exhibition. I am happily married to Jane.
