WELCOME,  I am Ron French , I have been into photography for 50 years now, and  I have been taking Infrared photos since the 1970's. Back  in those days it was Black & white infrared film, I now use a digital camera, which has made my life easier, no going into the darkroom for hours & no chemicals .The photo's were all taken on either a Fuji IS-1 infrared camera or a  Canon 40D slr converted to infrared, which entails removing the IR blocking filter and replacing it with a IR filter of your choice, I Use the 720nm filter.

I used Protech Photographic to convert the 40D to IR. website www.protechrepairs.co.uk. telephone 01825 732730. very good and fast service. Later this year I will be getting my canon 50D converted by Protech.

UPDATE-I have just had my 50D converted, by Protech, so as from 25th May all Infrared shots will be taken with the 50D.


This site is to show you how versatile Infrared photography can be, also how beautiful this IR world is that we cannot  normally see.

This site  is just for viewing my landscapes taken by Infrared, it is not a tutorial on how to take Infrared photo's, but I am happy to answer questions on IR photography via the Comments section on the Contact page
