25 years of photography as a hobby. I started out with a a great little SLR, a Zenith E (great sturdy Russian camera but weighed a ton) travelling the world as a soldier in the British Army. As life got easier (and I had more money) I moved onto a Ricoh KR10 and Fuji film and now life is really easy use a Canon EOS60D.
If it is a great landscape or it moves I will take it's photo ! I Draw the line at still life, a bowl of fruit is a bowl of fruit !
Now working out in the oil fields in the middle east where photographic inspiration is zero, but living in Cyprus where I 'escape' too every 5 weeks.
