I have always enjoyed photography, but never really done anything serious.

My favourite photo is one of my daughter, taken in Camden Market years ago on a 110 camera, in the days when you had to wait three weeks for photos to come back from Boots.

I love it because you can almost feel her excitement. I love how a photo can capture the moment like this.

My first camera was a Cannon SureShot.

I am currently using a Nikon DSLR, but have not really experimented with any of the manual settings yet, but I am hoping to get inspiration from the camera club to try out a few new techniques and try experimenting with some software.
