Just a bit about me. I live in Harlow in Essex with my wife Daphne, five guitars – latest acquisition is a Taylor acoustic ( what a brilliant guitar ) , several cameras – I’m a Nikon man, latest addition is a D800 – and a myriad of other techie toys.
I’ve written and self-published three novels: ‘The Outcrop’, ‘Spiral’ and ‘The Darkest of Lies’ ( all available through Amazon [ hint, hint ] ). And there may yet be a fourth. Hence the ‘Pronouns’ in Pixels and Pronouns.
I was a police officer in London for just over 30 years (now retired), and have been into photography since I was n-n-nineteen ( or thereabouts! ). I ran my own wedding photography business for ten years after retiring from the Met and I have a professional photographic qualification – LRPS – through the Royal Photographic Society. I’m currently working towards my ARPS qualification, putting together a panel of fifteen photographs and a supporting Statement of Intent.
I’m also a member of the Harlow Seniors Photographic Group. You can visit their website, and see some of their work, here .
