My interest in photography stems from a early age when as a young lad in the 60’s I would follow my Father into his darkroom and watch through the dim red light, an image appear (by what seemed magic) on a sheet of photographic paper in the developing tray. Marriage, kids and the rat race curtailed a serious pursuit of a career in photography until many years later when in 1987 I “upgraded” from film to my first digital camera a Fuji ds-h1 with its 400k resolution (less than ½ a Megapixel in today’s terms) and effectively moved the darkroom onto the computer I have a passion for taking land and seascape images, attempting to capture the beauty of nature in the optimum light, with many failures and the occasional success, but it took Joe Cornish, one of Britain's finest landscape photographers, eighteen years to become proficient in his craft, so I've got a lifetime to continue to improve and in the words of the master "Landscape photography is the supreme test of the photographer and often the supreme disappointment” Ansel Adams
