How long have you been a photographer?

I have been in photography since my father bought me a camera, a Bilora 'Boy' when, aged 9

What is the type of photography you usually do?

Nowadays I enjoy travel, at home and abroad, and landscape photography, but will have a go at any subject if it inspires me to get my camera out.  I like people photography and particularly people in museums and art galleries.

What photographers inspire you?

Henri Cartier-Bresson and many more of the Magnum photographers, Denis Thorpe and Michael Kenna

What is your favourite camera make?

I was a Nikon user for several decades but the outfit became to large and heavy so I traded it all in and bought into the Fuji X-system; now I have almost as much weight and bulk as the discarded Nikon kit, and I recently added a Leica and 35mm lens to make matters worse!

What are your thoughts about photography itself?

I think there are too many sub-divisions or categories in photography, and the RPS encourages this fragmentation.  To my mind there is simply photography, good, bad or indifferent.

My own photography is for me; if others enjoy seeing it when I give talks then that is great
