Hi, I'm Peter. I'm 24 and I took up photogaphy seriously about nine years ago, after I completed a period of work experience at a professional photographer's (and family friend's) although I have enjoyed taking 'snaps' for as long as I can remember. I'm now on my second DSLR and have built up a system around my main photographic interests; landscape, travel and macro. For me there's nothing more satisfying than being up and out on location for a dawn landscape shoot, probably because I'm extremely antisocial and most tourists are few and far between at 5am!
My favourite places to shoot are the Northumberland and North Yorkshire National Parks and along the North-East coastline for landscapes and the University Botanic Gardens Durham for my macro work. Also for me there's no place like Durham for city and architectural photography (although Newcastle isn't far behind!)
All comments are welcome. I'm continuously learning and I'm sure I still have a lot to learn so appreciate any feedback!
