I had a passion for photography from a young age; I’m really not sure where it came from. In fact, I bet if I searched my Dad’s loft, my first cartridge film camera would still be there! You can tell it’s a passion by the fact that I still have all of those photographs.
I progressed to a secondhand 35mm camera in my teens, mainly taking snaps on holidays and outings. Kids these days would want a new one, but I was happy as Larry with my old new toy.
My Uncle, who I was vey close to, was a keen photographer. He helped me buy my first digital camera on one visit to see him, a Sony Cybershot. I bought several newer models over the coming years. Uncle landed in the doghouse on a trip we made to Italy for treating himself to a new Nikon D40. He got around it by telling my Aunt that I needed a better camera and handed me his Pentax!
Sadly, my Uncle passed away suddenly and unexpectedly a short time after our trip. My Aunt knew he would have wanted me to have the camera, so along came the Nikon to me.
After spending some time with Rob Smith, a photographer friend in 2013, I have promised myself that I am going to make more time for photography. So, it’s with pure passion and enjoyment that I photograph, with my Uncle always in mind. I hope you enjoy looking at them.
