I had my first camera before I was 10 and my first SLR when I was 24. Serious photography came with the change to digital and the onset of retirement from full time employment as a civil engineer specialising in hydroelectric power. I gained my Licentiate Distinction from the Royal Photographic Society in 2008.
Now fully retired, I work with a group of artists in Norfolk (www.tworiverstrail.com) and enjoy taking images which show what people have seen but not noticed.
I’ve lived in England, Scotland and Lesotho (Southern Africa) and have taken a camera to around 60 countries world-wide. I've had Nikon equipment since 1970 and currently use a D800 SLR supported by an Olympus EM-1, a Coolpix compact and, occasionally, the ubiquitous smartphone.
As an antidote to a world of manipulated images of all kinds, I believe that photographs should show what was there at the time when the shutter was pressed. So image manipulation is largely limited to cropping and minimal post-processing with Lightroom software.
