A little bit about Me!

Well what can I really say about myself!!!  OK I will attempt to have a go.  Firstly, my name is Peter Killey which is pronounced kil-yah in the Isle of Man (my nickname is Swoop) I was born at the Jane Crookall Maternity Home in Douglas, Isle of Man a number of years ago now!!  I attended St. Mary's School, Ballakermeen High School and St. Ninian's High School.

After I left school I decided to follow in my father's footsteps and became a carpenter/joiner Me Italy 2008...which I did for a number of years, I got so bored with this job and so desperately wanted a career which would be exciting and rewarding and where I could help people and put something back into the Island where I live and love so much, so I applied to become a Firefighter and much to my surprise was successful, and basically that's where I am still employed to this day.  I have since been promoted a couple of times and I am now a Sub Officer in the Community Safety Department which is based at Douglas Fire Station on Peel Road in Douglas.

My interest in digital photography began in 1999ish when I bought myself a rather cheap digital camera.  I was so impressed with the outcome of the images that I decided that if I bought a better camera and a better computer then hopefully the results should be better!  Well here I am eight or so years on and hopefully the images you can now see on my website are a little bit better than the first ones I took when I first started this hobby! Click here to see my present camera equipment

Obviously I am a Manxman and I am very proud of my Manx roots and my Manx heritage, so much so that I decided to build this Isle of Man digital photographic website, so the whole world can see what I can see daily, in other words true God's country.

I am a very approachable person and I always enjoy receiving your emails.  Just let me know if you would like to see a particular area of the Isle of Man, you never know I may just have that picture!  Feel free to contact me even if you just want some general information about this beautiful Isle, you can contact me by clicking here also please feel free to sign my guestbook so I have a permanent record of your visit.

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of sharing. What you have caught on camera
today is captured forever . . . it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything...
