I am 71 years old and started out in photography at the tender age of 16 and served my apprenticeship in B&W photography.

Until the arrival of the Digital age I was printing B&W prints in the darkroom from Various standard B&W films and Kodak B&W Infra-Red film and my colour work was Cibachrome prints from my transparencies.

I embraced the digital era from the very beginning and converted to totally digital capture and processing totally digitally in January 2005 when I purchased a Canon EOS1D MkII.

From the very first day of using that Canon EOS1D MkII, I never used film again, I was totally hooked

I also create Infra-Red images using converted cameras.

My current Photographic Equipment is Canon.

My first love is Landscape Photography, my two favourite areas being the Derbyshire Peak District and the Isle of Harris.

My second love is Natural History photography but I also like the challenge of other avenues of photography.

I have always loved images in the Panoramic format and for quite a few years now I have been printing panoramic prints.
The introduction of the Fotospeed Panoramic Papers, have made printing panoramic images very easy.

I currently print using an Epson 3800 printer using Fotospeed refillable cartridges and Fotospeed inks.


"Your photographic skills and knowledge base was most impressive and I was particularly pleased with your willingness to share it with our Membership via Q&As from the floor." - Alan Lawrence ~ Programme Secretary ~ Wolverhampton Photographic Society
