I had my first camera when I was 10 years of age and was fortunate enough to take part in a photography and dark room course at school. I have been a keen amateur ever since. Over the years I have been taking a lot of black and white photos of musicians which I developed at home in the bathroom. Up to 2006 I used 35 mm print film, but then changed to digital. I now use a Nikon D3100 and a Nikon D200 with various lenses. Since going digital I broadened my choice of subjects to include macro, abstracts, landscape and architecture as well as people, especially musicians. Since joining the East Midlands Monochrome Club I re-discovered the joys of monochrome photography, which I now process digitally rather than in a wet darkroom as before. I exhibit my photos regularly in a group as well as on my own.
