    Hi, this is my first post on here.

    I live in the English Lake District. I have been a professional photographer for over 30 years. I've done most kinds of work to make my living. Lately I've been doing quite well as a wedding tog, www.steventaylorphotography.co.uk but I have had to succumb to the pixel fairies in that world and my passion is for B&W printmaking. So, I try to sell my landscape work which is all on film and printed in my darkroom. I would like to be able to afford to give up commercial work so I am putting a lot of effort in to promoting my personal work at the moment.

    I have spent some time reading through the presentation and marketing section. I think this forum will assist me with my aspirations.

    Nice to meet you.
    Steven

    Hi, Steven. Welcome to the forum. You ought to check out some of John Kiely's photographs of the Lake District and show us some of your own.

    Hi to all and thanks for your messages of welcome. Chris, thanks for letting me know about John Kiely. I googled him and found his site, they were a lot of familiar landscapes there. It's not just geography we have in common. We seem to share a similar background and a couple of teachers. You can see what I do on my web site www.fordcottagephotography.com

    I am looking forward to making some contributions.
    Steven

    Welcome to APUG Stephen, hope you enjoy it here.

    Ps. There's no such thing as 'pixel fairies'... pixel gremlins perhaps... :wink:
