Mr Malcolm S Firth

My interest in photography started when at about ten years old, I was given a Kodak Brownie 127 as a birthday present. (I still have the camera and some of the first images taken with it) So at this early age I can safely say I got the ‘bug’ and have taken pictures ever since.
I began taking a serious interest in photography many years ago when I embarked on a two year part time City & Guilds 9231 course at the local Art College where I gained LRPS, the experience gave me so much enjoyment I built myself a makeshift darkroom and spent the next few years specialising and learning to work with monochrome.
By 1996 and after a serious illness, I felt in need of inspiration and knowledge to get me back on my way to recovery, so I joined a full time Fine Arts access course (Specific photographic courses were not available at that intermediary level) covering Ceramics, Life Drawing, Painting, Print Making, Textiles, Graphic Design and of course Photography. After completing this course I was put forward for a placement at Bradford University to studied Photography. and Art History, on a full time basis with the aim of achieving HND and a BA (Hons) degree which I completed successfully in July 2002.
