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

My passion for photography began watching my grandfather working in his darkroom. I 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.

But now digital is great, in so many ways, and certainly a huge cost saving on film and developing. The downside is the temptation to take far too many images!

I now have over 45 years photography experience and over 30 years using Adobe Photoshop. 

When I'm not working, you'll find me working with my fellow Prestatyn Rotarians, or in the River Elwy at night fishing for sea trout with Rhyl & St Asaph Angling Association, of which I'm Chairman, or browsing for a bargain at Cob Records in Porthmadog!
