Retired since 2002 and loving it . . . . I tell people it's the best job I have had since leaving school!
Bought my first SLR in 1966 a Zenith. Over the years I progressed through Praktica, Pentax, Minolta and as cameras became more sophisticated I used them solely in automatic mode. When the digital era arrived this reawakened my interest in using a camera to its full potential, rather than relying on the camera to make all the decisions. I now use a Nikon 300s digital SLR camera with several lenses.
I enjoy taking all manner of photographs and I try, if possible, to look for a different angle to an image.
In May 2014 I gained the Licentiateship of the Royal Photographic Society.
