I returned to 365 in 2021 after a break of 14 months. Life just got too busy (fun but busy) If you are interested, here are my shots that made the popular page. http://alexisbirkill.com/365project/popularpage/getuserdetails.php?username=swillinbillyflynn

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.

I now have five digital cameras, 50+ vintage 35mm film SLR cameras, five vintage medium format cameras, enough lenses to reach half way to the moon, nine tripods and a fully functional darkroom.

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 website activity. A very worthwhile and lucrative experience. My work is currently available to buy in various shops in and around Cornwall.

My other interests are......

My goodly pirate wench Kitty has her own 365 project running over here http://365project.org/cutekitty/365

**** Update **** I now own 16 tripods which I believe officially makes it an obsession and quite possibly a fetish.
