  Artist's Statement:
My initial interest in photography was started at an early age by my fascination with my father's collection of cameras, lenses and other bits and pieces when he was a wedding photographer. At ten years of age I had an Agfa Isolette which I used at my Aunt's wedding to produce a set of pictures of the guests - all with their heads missing! At high school I had a Russian Edixa M42 SLR which was closely followed by a Nikkormat then a Nikon FG. I still have the Edixa and the FG Both of which are still working today. After a brief encounter with a Nikon D100 in 2003, I had a renewed interest in film which prompted the purchases of a Rolleicord V, a Bronica ETRS system and a Mamiya RB67 system and the construction of a 5x4" field camera as well as some other modifications such as converting an old Polaroid roll film camera to take 120 roll film on a 6 x 10cm format. I like to combine photography with walking and rarely take pictures which include people.
  Technical Information:
I am now mainly using a Mamiya RB67 with 90mm and 50mm lenses with the 180mm on the shopping list. I like carrying it around using the left hand grip and the waist level finder. I use Ilford PAN F if using a tripod and Ilford HP5+ rated at EI 200 when hand held. I often use a yellow or orange filter. Films are usually developed in Ilford LC-29. For colour I use Fuji Velvia and Provia.
