I have been taking photographs since the age of eight when my parents gave me a Kodak Box Brownie. There followed a swift learning of how to process prints in the bathroom that eventually was transformed into a love of darkroom work later in life. During my professional travels as a lecturer I was fortunate in that it gave me time to explore many places around the world, often in company with equally enthusiastic students who also enjoyed photography outside of work.
For many years (in fact well over 20!) I was part of the photographic studies group led by Brian Nevitt at Missenden Abbey in Buckinghamshire. Although these weekend classes have now ceased, many of us still meet as "Missenden Photographers" led by Brian. I converted to digital photography well over ten years ago but occasionally I still take up a roll film camera to remind me of my photographic roots.
