My route through to a career in photography started with four years at Art College where we students were encouraged to experiment in different areas and I soon discovered the joy of taking pictures. Hours spent in the darkroom became a pleasure rather than toil.
Many years on and after doing the assistant bit followed by several years going it alone in General Practice Photography. I now find myself working as a professional architectural photographer in the North of England, despite the somewhat unreliable weather.
My trusty 5x4 Sinar, Polaroid back, assortment of lenses and dozen or so darkslides, have been replaced by the Nikon D3 and Photoshop. This is called progress but I can't say it's improvement.
I still love the challenge that every day and new assignment brings - I've long since realised that professional photography is as much about problem solving as it is about taking pictures and that it isn't enough to take good pictures, we have to be all round communicators.
