Well I'm Stuart from Sheffield.
Photography. Well I fell in love with the subject at 14/15 years old and joined the school photography club. This involved using a Practica MTL5B as a camera rather than as a door stop. To think I had the chance to photograph P3 girl Kirsty Palmer back then before she'd even thought of doing glamour modeling. Instead I took pix of my not so good looking best female school pal. So, niave was I to have missed out on such a chance at 15 years old lol.
Any hows, after some deliberance on whether to pursue a carear in engineering or photography I completed a BTEC ND Photography course between 1989-91.
So misguided was I? Engineering would have possible had more money in it. Instead I spent 9 years as a photographic laboratory technician specialising in hand printing. The reality of a photography career is that it's low paid and the types of jobs available tend to be within labs or working for dodgy home visting portrait companies.
Very few students are lucky enough to 'develop' a career at a decent level in photography.
On a more positive note, photography has continued to be my prime hobby which I'm quite sucessfull at. I've always had a keen interest/skill in using IT to produce images and love using Camera Rawn/Photoshop to post edit my images. I initially joined Ephotozine doing b/w processing/printing swearing never to take up digital. But a house stinking of chemicals pursuaded me otherwise.
Please look at my work and I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I've had producing them.
