About

My name is William. I am 56 years old, I was born and raised in Glasgow, Scotland. I have spent many years abroad and only just returned to the UK in February 2017 and I am currently living in London. Where I will probably stay until my old age. I have spent most of my adult life in Belgium.

I have experimented with several digital cameras since my return to the UK, and perhaps I am actually starting to get the hang of things (You tell me!)
I started my photographic path when I was eight years old, having bought a 'Kodak brownie from a jumble sale with my pocket money. My Dad, seeing that I was clearly interested in taking photographs, then went to the attic to dig out an old Voigtlander bellows camera which I used for about a year before my Dad bought me a Zorki 4K 35mm camera for Christmas. With that, he also bought me a bulk film loader and set up a darkroom for me. He also supplied all the bulk film rolls, processing chemicals, and printing paper.
A couple of years later I'd saved enough money from my pocket money to buy a second hand Praktica Nova, my first step into using an SLR.
Afterwards, I stepped up with the gear I was using and ended up using an Olympus OM1 with a variety of lenses, at the age of 14.
To be honest, I was probably more talented then than I am now.

William, I looked you up after seeing that you liked my picture, 'Burning'. Found your portfolio to be very interesting and decided to follow your future shots - hope you don't me doing such.

I've just looked at your images William. I see why Luna loves animals, she has grown up with them. You and her mother probably love animals too. That's usually how it all starts. For me it did, and it was mostly from my father. A great portfolio.
