I believe my initial interest in photography came from my much loved Grandad, who was into his photography and had his own darkroom.
I took a City & Guilds course at Guildford College way back in 1991 before digital cameras but lost some confidence after that and never turned photography into a career. I continued taking photos, remembering some of the basic rules of photography but it was mainly on holidays with a 35mm compact camera.
It was only in 2010, when I purchased a digital SLR camera that I really got back into photography. My passion for photography has grown year by year ever since. During these last few years I have had some fantastic feedback, entered some local competitions and even had a few stalls at local fairs / markets.
