Hi, I'm David from Sheffield, England and have been dabbling in photography since about 1985, though I bought my first camera - an Olympus Trip point and shoot - in 1987.

I like shooting film, particularly on medium format - and so it is my preferred method of taking photographs these days. Digital has a place in my armoury, sure, but I will hang on to film shooting for as long as it’s viable. Not snobbery, just personal preference.

I don't have a photographic style per se, though I seem to have taste for vintage re-enactment events, so I turn up dressed the part with a period camera.

NOTE FOR AGENCIES LOOKING TO POACH MY WORK FOR FREE:
Except where explicitly stated, EVERY image in my gallery is mine and I hold the copyright. You MAY NOT steal my work. I live in the real world where film costs real money to buy, develop and print, so if you see something you like the look of and wish to use it, you must first consider what financial offer you are prepared to make.

Don't like that? Expecting a freebie? Take a hike, most sincerely.
