I have been on 365 for many years now and am Still really enjoying it.

I must apologise for my lack of commenting on other people photographs, but I am kept really stupidly busy, playing in two bands, running my own recording studio and my own small independent record label. I also run a small business manufacturing strange and curious steampunk objet d'art, but I do enjoy looking at the fabulous photographs you guys post.

I first started taking photos in 2012 with a cheap point and shoot camera........ then the photography addiction bit me hard. I spent 3 Years on Blipfoto and parted company with them in Jan 2015 after 1125 consecutive daily photographs and came here to 365.

If you are interested, here are my shots that made the popular page. http://alexisbirkill.com/365project/popularpage/getuserdetails.php?username=swillinbillyflynn

I now have 6 digital cameras, 70+ vintage 35mm film SLR cameras, five vintage medium format cameras, enough lenses to reach halfway to the moon, 16 tripods and a fully functional darkroom....... which, I feel, counts as an obsession and quite possibly a dangerous fetish)

In 2014 I had my first photographic exhibition in a local art gallery, my first professional photographic assignment which led to my first work published in a glossy magazine. Given enough time I might even learn to take a half decent photo.

I have no specific photographic style. I just shoot whatever life throws at me, although I particularly like street photography. I like to take a camera out with me and go looking for a shot, rather than setting up posed photo shoots in a studio. Although, having said that. I would rather set up a shot than fake it with Photoshop. :)

I recently had an exhibition of my photographic work at Heartlands in Pool in Cornwall which ran for 18 months. Sold lots of prints and generated lots of media interest and activity. A very worthwhile and lucrative experience.
