My father was my inspiration. My first camera was a Rollie 35.I also got my fathers Rollie TLR. Then years ago I bought a Canon EOS 5 outfit + Prolinca studio lights. Still have the lights but traded in the Eos for a Canon G2 digital camera years ago. Then added a Canon Powershot S80 for underwater (holiday snorkelling) shots. I have finally managed to buy a digital SLR (Pentax K10D) and am starting to get to grips with it.
I dont really have a favourite subject as such, but do like to capture sunrises & sunsets when on holidays. Mainly I just take a photograph whenever I happen to see something I like.
