My Photography

A little about my photography… well, what can I say. I started photography back in
1979 when I was just 11 years old.

I was given a 35mm SLR Camera by my  late Grandfather as a birthday present.
The camera was a Russian built Zenith EM and built like a house brick. Many of
my slides on here and Flickr are taken with the very same camera.

My passion stemmed from my Grandfathers love of photography  and in particular
his fondness of the English Lake District. I will showcase his work on here in the future
but there are over 10,000 slides and I have  quite a task ahead of me scanning them in.

In the late eighties and early nineties I moved on to autofocus SLR’s and began to
accumulate quite a stash of equipment. In between my full-time employment and
sleeping I started doing small photographic assignments for friends, family and
small businesses. This made photography that much more interesting, if I could
make some money as well, all the better.

I began doing small jobs for friends and family and things escalated from that
point forward. I will discuss my ventures in more detail on separate pages on my blog.

In the early 2000’s I started using a digital camera and traded all my traditional film
cameras in for more equipment.

I took an avid interest in  aviation photography at the start of the 2000’s when
digital cameras became more accessible. My enjoyment took on a whole new level
when I discovered I could mix my love of light & colour with aviation photography
by taking photographs.

Photography is an art, and is very personal. There are no rights and wrongs in
this profession. I learned that if you like something and are happy with it then
that’s where the book stops. This rule changes when you are doing something
for a client of course…….

I hope you enjoy looking  through my images. Please feel free to make comments.

Thank you.
