I love taking pictures and getting the best that I can from the people I shoot. Children are my favourites :0)

My father was a keen photographer, he had a darkroom set up at home when I was little and I can still smell the chemicals if I close my eyes and think back... who said time travel wasn't possible? Smells can be very powerful in bringing memories to the surface.

This is my mother, taken by Dad probably in the 60s, most likely before I was born. I have inherited the archive of his transparencies, negatives and prints, some negs have never even been contact printed. The long term plan is to digitize the collection - where to start??

I didn't really get enthusiastic about photography until after my Dad died when I was 19, but I hope he would be proud to see where I am now, especially gaining my LRPS last year, and becoming affiliated with www.nilmdts.org the year before. I hope an ARPS is on my horizon - its good to have a project, it would be even better to share one with my Dad.
