Retired ex pro bass player of 45 years experience I've been taking photographs since the late 70's . My love of Black and White has remained as strong as ever since the days in my own darkroom. Some of the shots posted here have been "set-up" the rest are as I have found them lit with natural light but with a little help from some wonderful software, the computer is now my modern darkroom.
I find great encouragement and inspiration here on 500px from some of the worlds greatest photographers
The hope is that you enjoy my work.
Kind Regards Richard
