Paddy Bell

I started my working life as a lithographer. Through the years I have owned Reproduction Company's. Now that I have time for my self and am living in Africa, nature photography keeps me calm. Portraiture is also a favourite of mine. I am my own worst critic and reject most of my pictures. I love to enjoy other people's work always wondering how they got the results that they had got. The equipment available to reach the quality that the masters get now. Well , I started using glass plates coated with silver, hand developing them like bromides in big trays.,using ruby safe lights.
Darn, the computer came after me. Thank God I have Grand children.
