I have been taking photos since the age of 9 years when my Gran gave me a Brownie box camera of about 1920 vintage!.
After leaving school and earning my own money I bought an SLR camera taking mainly black & white pictures, developing and printing in my bedroom. Later with the advent of better cameras and good quality colour slide film, I furthered my hobby amassing a vast collection of slides.
In 2002 wanting to take my hobby further I went to college evening classes taking a City & Guilds photography course. Over the next three years I studied seven modules in different aspects of photography gaining six distinctions & one credit which qualified me for an LRPS from the Royal Photographic Society.
After college I joined Hungerford Camera Club and am currently the competition secretary. My main area of interest is fine art landscape photography which combines my love of photography and wild places.
My love of photography is being out the landscape and capturing an image to best of my ability and then presenting it as a printed photograph that conveys the image that I wanted to show. With the advent of digital photography you have to try just that bit harder because all the world and his dog has a means of taking a snap whether it be camera or phone. I try and keep the Photoshop element to a minimum so retain the integrating of the image.
I also mount & frame my work as well as doing mounting & framing for other people.
I will accept commissions that I feel I can do justice to.
