I am a retired IT professional who specialized in large infrastructure and data centre projects. I have undertaken work in a number of places including Europe, the Middle East and the US. I have been married for 42 years, have three adult children and three grandchildren.

Photography has been a keen interest of mine since I was a boy and used a folding camera which I believe was a Kodak Hawkeye loaned to me by my oldest sisters boyfriend. My interest was such that I was then given a Kodak Brownie Box that Christmas. Two years later I progressed to a smaller Kodak Brownie 127 that was made out of bakelite or plastic and a little more portable.

Several years later at the age of fourteen I was saving for something a little better doing milk rounds and anything else that would earn me a few shillings. I finally saved enough to purchase a Yashica 635 which was a twin-lens reflex dual format camera taking 120 and 35mm film. I used this camera for over 10 years but because I was planning to work in the Middle East foolishly part exchanged it for a a super8 cine camera, to this day I regret parting with this excellent camera with its pin sharp optics.

Whilst in the MIddle East I sold the super8 and during my UK leave walked the street of London attempting to find a stockist that had the very new Olympus OM1. I eventually found one who said that he could have one the following day if I was prepared to leave a sizable deposit. Fortunately he was as good as his word and I became the proud owner of one of the smallest, lightest SLRs available at the time, it served me well for many years. I still have the Olympus although I progressed to the Canon EOS 10 then 5 and then on to the D60 and now the 5D. I have a variety of compact cameras including the Canon G9 and Leica D-Lux3. I also use a Sanyo Xacti HD digital movie camera.

I do not specialize in any particular type of photography and before the digital age I used slide film for everything other than photographing the family. Despite my efforts I have not as yet managed to scan all of my slides, only about 4,500 to go.

Whilst I don’t do much studio work these days I do have three Elinchrom mono-blocs and one or two different backdrops including a Lastolite HiLite which is worth its weight in gold.
