BIOGRAPHY
Having always been interesed in 'how things worked' I have been intrigued by photography from an early age. My first camera was a Kodak Brownie 127 at the age of 12, but found I couldn't persuade my father to pay for the film and processing from his meagre wage so snapping was very limited! At the age of 14 I discovered a half frame 120 film camera called a Coroll 24 retailed by Boots. This offered twice the number of snaps at half the price so naturally I was interested! This had a fixed focus f16 lens which gave very sharp images in bright light. I still have this camera. At 18 and employed I took to 35 mm with glee and was the proud owner of a manual Praktica Nova with a rubbish f2.8 50mm lens and Weston Master v meter. This was the age of the Pentax and the consumer affordable slr and I loved the idea and practise of roaming and recording in B&W the urban and rural landscape. At University I had access to a darkroom and being a sponsored student could afford my photography. At one point my work was exhibited unknown to me at a local art college and I then briefly considered a change of career !! For various reasons my interest in photography waned and it wasn't until many years later with the advent of the home pc and digital photography with its limitless creative possibilities that I was once again hooked. I enjoy being part of the sharing photo community, appreciating and sharing the different photographic worlds we all inhabit.
