My name is Bill and Ive been married to Maureen for 40 years. We have two adult daughters, Wendy and Sarah. I was born and raised in Hartlepool, which is on the North East Coast and still live there today.

Ive been a member of my local camera club for 25 years. Walking in the Lake District led to my interest in photography as I wanted to be able to capture some of the magnificent views from the likes of Skiddaw or Catbells when out walking with the family.

After much investigating I purchased my first real camera, a Canon T50, I then progressed onto a Canon T90 which I had for quite a few years, but the old eye sight started to fail and I moved onto an auto focus and got a Canon EOS3. Jumped into the deep end and went digital getting a Canon 10D, big step considering Id hardly used a computer!!

I enjoy taking landscape/seascape photographs, people, which I generally take at History in Action events, Wartime events at Pickering, Whitby Goth Weekend etc.

Previous to joining this website I had only ever shown my photography at club competitions etc, this site allows you get opinions from other likeminded people, helping me to develop my photo taking and Photoshop skills.

What a pleasure it has been looking through some of the many pages in your portfolio. A very interesting collection of images with some excellent compositions, processing and subject choices.
