Although I am a convert to digital photography I have been interested in photography for years.
I left school and joined the Royal Navy and completed 24 years service and at the ripe old age of 40 was pensioned off, During my service I visited lots of interesting places and I just wish digital photography was around during those times. I am a veteran of the Falklands Conflict (was it really 40 years ago) and I was in Hong Kong for the handover, after leaving the Royal Navy I was a heavy goods chauffeur and toured UK and found some lovely places for photographs, I then went to work at Gatwick Airport, I am now semi retired.For our 25th Wedding anniversary my wife bought me a Canon EOS 300D and with the lenses that I had from our Canon film camera's I was like a kid with a new toy, we spent our anniversary in New Hampshire at the time of the fall and my wife loved the camera so much we purchased a Canon EOS 350D on return from the states, which because it has a small grip she finds ideal. After about 2 years I wanted to upgrade to the 20D and once the money was saved I could not find one so opted for the 30D which was a brilliant camera, we have both upgraded our camera's my wife had a 77D and I had a 80D, Last year 2022 we decided to go mirrorless so my wife now has the Canon R10 and I have the R7 we can still use the old lenses,I like to take all types of photographs as I hope my Gallery shows.
