I have always been interested in art and design, I started drawing as soon as I could hold a pencil and never stopped. When I was 14, a family friend passed on his 35mm Olympus OM-10, this was my first introduction to photography.
When I was 18, I began a photography A-Level course at a local college where I focussed on developing film images in their darkroom. As I turned 20, I continued my studies in photography at Manchester Metropolitan University, but sadly no access to a darkroom. Once I graduated, I travelled around Australia and enjoyed using my camera but had lost a lot of interest since completing my degree. It’s taken this long to reignite my passion for photography and found joining Conwy Camera Club has brought it back to life!
