About Jason

Welcome to the photo gallery and blog of Jason Dale from Llanelli. Here you’ll find a selection of my favourite images and blogs about photography. I hope you enjoy the images which feature a wide range of subjects including landscapes, especially from around South Wales, and natural history.

B6Ywg9ce This site is run by Llanelli based Jason Dale. I enjoy taking photos and wanted a site to showcase my favourites from my Flickr account and also to see where that will lead. Ideally I’d love to do some work in photography and hopefully sell some of my prints and images. If nothing else it’d be great to share them with a wider audience.

Originally called Croeso Photography, the new name of Tog.co.uk was adopted as the domain became available and also because ‘tog’ is a lot easier to spell than Croeso. Tog is also a short name for ‘photographer’ – although not all who use a camera like to be known as togs.

In 2016 the site moved to it’s new home of jasondale.co.uk!

How I Started

I started photography as a hobby when I received a Sony A100 as a Christmas present. I started using it to take photos of ducks and other birds at The Wetlands Centre in Llanelli. Since then I’ve picked up some extra kit, drowned one camera in the sea and upgraded to a newer model. I’m also a member of the Llanelli Photographic Society.

Ducks and birds will feature a lot on tog.co.uk, but look out for more Welsh Castles and Welsh countryside pictures – including at some point the obligatory shots of The Gower, Three Cliffs and Worm’s Head. I’ve also tried macro photography and I’ve taken photos for a friends wedding – probably the most nerve wracking photography experience so far!

Although Canon and Nikon seem to be the brands of choice I’ve stuck with Sony simply because I’d need to start my lens collection again!

Accolades

In 2014 I won The Many Tears Photography Competition – best overall image and best Many Tears dog. I also was one of 12 winners to have an image chosen to appear on Swansea Cats Protections 2015 calendar. I’ve also had images appear in the local press and as backdrops for the local TV news. Hopefully these are just the start and not the highlights!
