I first became fascinated when I was about 14 years old, a long time ago!!! I have used many cameras in different formats, one big thing that I have learned over the years is that cameras are boring as a subject but photography as a subject is fascinating.
I hold a Licenciateship qualification with the SWPP in wedding photography. After a rough few years in life, my interests changed. I started going out walking and doing some landscape photography. I did this for a while until I started missing people in my pictures. I spent a little time looking at the best way forward. I decided to fit models into landscape work. I moved into art nude work, the models became part of a landscape. Most of my work is in black and white and I have never been happier with my photography.
For the technical among you my camera is a Nikon D750 and I have a few lenses to go with it. It is a full frame digital but I still hold that the old adage from film days that a good big one will always beat a good little one. I often shoot in manual mode with a hand held meter. I always shoot raw and convert in Lightroom. I do use Nik software in Lightroom to do my black and white conversions which is owned these days by Google.
Photography to me is not so much what the camera see’s as how your imagination interprets the image. Cameras can be used as a recording instrument or as a tool to be creative with. I prefer mine as a creative tool.
