I'm now semi-retired and based in the resort town of Prestatyn, North Wales.

My passion for photography began watching my grandfather working in his darkroom. I later got a great buzz developing black and white film and then printing in a make-shift darkroom - seeing an image appear on a blank sheet of paper in the developing tank.

I only shoot digital now though which gives so many benefits. Currently using a 36Mp DSLR for most work although my trusty Nikon D3 and D700 still have a role to play when ultra large files are not required. The D3 files are so clean and noise-free allowing me to shoot at very high ISO's without the need for any noise reduction.

When I'm not working, you'll find me with my fellow Prestatyn Rotarians, or stood in the River Elwy at night fishing for sea trout!
