I am 41 and live in Horsforth with my wife and two children and I have been studying photography on and off since 1999. I first realised my passion for photography, when I first went to evening class at Park lane college in Horsforth, this was where I first processed black and white film and where I produced my first black and white prints, I will always remember my first print, putting a sheet of photographic paper into a tray of chemicals and the image I had imprinted onto the paper using an enlarger, turned this blank piece of paper into an image I had taken – I was hooked!
I have a particular passion for abstract photography and like to use various filters, flash guns, fisheye lenses and enjoy using long shutter speed timings to create motion blur. A favourite place to use these techniques is London as the skyline is so iconic, filled with vibrant colours and buildings filled with light to experiment with, as a contrast I still love black and white photography and continue to use this as a preferred choice for most subjects, with my digital camera and on occasion my film camera. I have a darkroom set up in my garage where I still process film and prints.
