About meI was given my first camera at the age of seven years – a Brownie 127 with fixed focus, shutter speed and aperture. I happily spent many hours in the bathroom at home making contact prints of the negatives. At the age of 11 I joined the photography club at school and learned the pleasures of printing with an enlarger in a proper darkroom.
My first SLR came along when I was 21 – a Pentax ME Super. Quickly followed by a Durst enlarger letting me produce enlargements in a darkroom which also served as my bedroom. At the same time I attended a photography evening course at Brunel University run by a gentleman called Brian Nevitt. Google tells me he is still running courses to this day.
Now many years later at the age of 53 I take pictures digitally but also scan and rework my older negatives. I take mainly landscapes, townscapes and decrepitude.
