I’m passionate about photography and always have been, I love using modern digital cameras, my Nikon D850 and D800 both being amazing cameras. I also love my old but trusty, Nikon D200 which I have had specially converted to Infra-Red. Infra-Red photography has always fascinated me, though in film days Infra-Red was harder to do than it is today with a converted digital camera.
I miss the good old days of film photography though, that whole process of creating your image. From taking the photograph and processing the film, to producing your finished print. Watching that image appear on the paper in the Dark Room is a magical moment, a wonderful and fascinating process throughout.
I used to use, but still have 2 classic Nikon FA’s and the amazing medium format Zenza Bronica SQ-A. These are old but trusty workhorses, shame I have not used them in a long time. I must get them out one day…
Ah, the Good days…
After I left school, I studied Photography and whilst doing so, my lecturer entered me into a competition run by the BIPP or ‘British Institute of Professional Photography’.
I was delighted to be awarded a ‘First Merit’ in the national student category.
I have had the pleasure of being a Volunteer, Trustee, Guide and photographer for the Registered Charity, ‘Friends of Williamson’s Tunnels’ for almost 20 years now. It has been a wonderful experience working on the Tunnels, exploring Joseph Williamson’s Subterranean kingdom, taking many photographs during this time.
I am Proud of my home city of Liverpool, its History, Heritage and it’s Architecture.
I love Photographing all things Subterranean, our Heritage, Architecture, Landscape and other interesting things…
I am also involved in the “Liverpool & Manchester Railway Trust”. We are determined to get Liverpool’s Railway Heritage recognised and apreciated by the world. Liverpool, the birthplace of the Railways.
