Based in the NW UK. Keen amateur photographer since the age of 13 when I bought my first Nikon (EM-10).
Having progressed with the EM-10 then onto an F50, I turned to digital with the Nikon D50. I still use the D50 as a back-up body, but now use a Nikon D300 as the main body.
I have used Adobe Photoshop for the last 6 years, through various versions, now using CS5. Plugins used include Lucis, Kodak GEM, NIK Plugins, Imageware, Topaz amongst others.
I'm not a 'type' photographer, I'll happily shoot portraits to landscapes, street to still life. I think the true ability of a photographer is gauged on versatility, not on the ability of shooting a single subject perfectly.
In the same way, I'll happily shoot colour, mono, cross process, colour balanced and everything in between.
Update: Now using Photoshop CS6....wow!
