Introduction

Photography has been an interest and has occupied me on and off since my early teens...which means I have been involved for hmmm...some 50 years or so.  In Dec 09 I felt I needed a new challenge to 'focus' on and joined the Royal Photographic Society (RPS) with the aim of eventually gaining the LRPS distinction. Over the following few months I assembled a portfolio of digital images that I felt might meet the necessary standards and was lucky enough to be awarded LRPS in April 2010.

So where next? It was high time to move out of my photographic comfort zone and to try to develop a more distinctive, individualistic style by trying my hand at 'Street' photography. Taking inspiration from the likes of H C-B (of course), Joel Meyerowitz, Martin Parr and Elliot Erwitt , I sallied forth onto the Street. Nerve-wracking. Definitely outwith my comfort zone.

Another move out of my comfort zone was with the change for most of my photography to the use of rangefinder cameras rather than heavy/bulky DSLR. The Leica M (Typ 240) digital plus Leica film cameras now form my main armament, so to speak. Yes, you read correctly - film! Mostly black and white, 35mm (Leica) and 6x6cm (Rolleicord Vb), all developed at the kitchen sink. Currently the digital:film usage is circa 50:50.  Forming part of the digital element are images from my iPhone4S and various apps. Regular musings on all things film related can be found in my 'Emulsion Mania' blog.
