Mr Peter Roworth

My earliest memory of photography was using the good old Brownie 127 taking family photos. I then progressed from the Halina 35X, to Exaktas then Nikons, using photography as part of my 40 years working in nature conservation, managing nature reserves. Photography was used in my work, whether it was for taking species or habitats. Any nature conservation organisation requires images for publicity and I have been fortunate to have had hundreds published for displays, leaflets, magazines and books.  Although I now use a digital camera but I still occasionally use a film camera and enjoy the anxious wait for the return of a colour transparency film to check it on a light box. The chance opportunity of being commissioned to provide photographs for a book led my wife and I to publishing, through Halsgrove, a number of books depicting landscape and architecture in Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and the East Riding of Yorkshire. It's nice to share images with others and it is equally good to see the work of other photographers; there is always something new to learn.

I am now retired and use the Fuji X camera system.
