Simon Thorne

Simon has enjoyed photography since being a child, encouraged by his dad he started his photographic life with a small Agfa 35mm compact at the zoo at about 7 years old. Over the years until he was 21 Simon was a keen photographer entering the occasional local competition as fun. The family life took over & the photography stopped apart from shooting, Christopher, his son's growing up shots. However in 2005 Simon discovered digital & slowly regained his love for the hobby, culminating in 2011 by reinvesting in a DSLR & completing a 365 project. Christopher is now 16 & Simon's dad continued to bring the young into the hobby, giving Christpher an old camera of his & then funding Christopher's s1t DSLR. Christopher joined this site & encouraged me to do the same. Now history repeats itself with the two generations taking trips out with the cameras.

Simon would be pleased to recieve feedback on his photos as it will help him to improve so please feel free to leave comments.
