I have been taking pictures since I was about 10 years old but I suppose I got really serious in the early 1980s. I have owned a succession of Canon cameras starting with a Canon AE1 Program, which I consider to be my first proper camera. Although I now own digital equipment I still like to run a film or two through one of my 'analogue' cameras.
I live in the UK and own a model and hobby store which keeps me busy for a large part of my time. I keep threatening to retire but my customers won't let me. My main interest outside photography is transport, mainly buses, coaches and trains but boats and planes too, and I have amassed a large collection of slides and negatives taken during the last 30 years or so.
I am a record photographer mainly as I can't do art although I admire those that can see something artistic in a mundane item.
Unfortunately my previous 365 has been deleted somehow so I'm going through all my old cards etc to try and rebuild it. Although working sometimes restricts what I can do so there was always some gaps.
