After dabbling as a teenager with film (and the subsequent home “dark room”) a 25 year gap ensued before the bug bit again…. digital being the instigator. Trying to make up for lost time.

Have been lucky enough in the last 5 years in my return to meet up with talented and just as importantly, enthusiastic photographers, all striving to better themselves, something that I am trying to do.

  • Thanks Mieke, still in the process of putting the new lens through its paces, looking forward to testing it out in the sporting side of things.
