I have been in photographic retail from 1971 to 1998, the later 15 years running my own business. Been there done that! Now looking to be behind the camera, not behind the counter.

Done the Nikon F2 photomic, FM2/FE2, lenses from 24mm to 300mm, including Tamron SP. Olympus 35RD and XA compacts for fun. Visited Canon's HQ and manufacturing plants in Japan as well as Tokina's lens manufacturing plant. Enjoyed watching Alan Jessop (yes, Jessops) playing squash, much to the delight of the UK dealers.

I have now converted to the digital age. Anyone remember the real darkroom techniques, D76 and Tri-X, D163 and Bromide paper, etc.?

Seriously, I love the creativie possibilities at my finger tips.

Photographs are shot as RAW, saved as TIFF at 300dpi before converting to jpeg.
