    From Bookham to the Outer Hebrides

    Hello Everyone
    Dave Miller from the center of England, as he calls it, suggested I join you. Most people know me for my black and white images taken in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland - www.scotland-info.co.uk/snapshots. I've been travelling to the islands every summer (although it doesn't always feel like summer in their summer) since 1994. It's the people that I love to photograph. Over the years we have noticed great changes in their way of life, which has moved from a sheep-based economy, Harris Tweed etc to tourism as the number one industry.

    A portrait of my twin grand-daughters gained me a Bronze Medal in 2006 in the Royal Photographic Society's International Exhibition.

    Welcome. I made it to Skye this year (my first trip to Scotland); you can bet the Outer Hebrides are high on my list of destinations.

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?

    Hi from another resident of middle England, a little to the west of Dave Miller. They don't need summers in the Hebrides, They have their malt. So do we in England but ours is called Horlicks. The drink that makes you long for the morning to arrive.
