About Me

I have has been fascinated by photography since the 1960’s, when I use to rescue negatives from the kitchen bin where my dad would throw them after returning from the chemist with the holiday snaps. My first proper camera, a Praktica MTL3 was bought in the late 70’s and was soon followed by an upgrade to a Pentax ME Super and then my own darkroom which was set up in the kitchen after tea.

After a gap of over 15 years due to family stuff I came back to photography to find everything had gone digital. Cue a 6 week introductory course on digital photography, closely followed by a BTech at Hull College to bring me up to speed and away I went again.

After trying most subjects and genres, I seem to be leaning more and more towards a street/documentary/reportage style photography. Although I do still have a keen interest in all types of landscape photography.
