I was born on a farm in the rural county of Shropshire in the United Kingdom. My interest in photography was first sparked by the gift of a small 35mm camera when I was 1o, and further inspired by the outstanding work of a school friend later. This led to a lifetime (well so far) interest in photography that has spanned a period of more than 40 years. As an avid follower of technology and an early adopter of digital photography, I use some techniques learned in the darkroom and apply them to my images through the application of software. If you like them let me know.
