My Dad got me into photography – Thanks Dad šŸ™‚

Probably at about age 8 I was fascinated with my dads camera.
Dad bought me an old kodakĀ camera that took small black and white film that we could only buy out of date films for from a local chemist!

My first “proper camera” was a 35mm Zeth EM that I still have today. I loved the mechanical workings and dials, the light meter and the focusing area in the viewfinder.

At the age of 29 I set up my first photography business offering photo restorations from a back bedroom, that soon grew out of the bedroom into a small shop and into a studio offering portraits, wedding and commercial service.

Now I’m focusing on shooting Landscapes in and around Cumbria, producing prints, canvasses, cards, calendars and other photo gifts. And I’m loving it šŸ™‚

Living in Cumbria you get used to the very changeableĀ weather and quickly learn to accept just how changeable and unpredictable it can be – but I love it!
