A keen amateur photographer since my early teens (1974 onwards). I'm a committed film user but I do enjoy using my digital gear. In fact, I don't understand why people discard one medium in favour of the other, as they are so different.

My main interests (photographically) are travel and street shooting for 35mm but mostly landscapes for 120 and 5x4.

I'm not technically-minded or particularly dextrous - so I'm not going to pretend I know anything about how to build or fix cameras or lenses. I just enjoy using them and, for me, it's more about the end result.
