My Background

I started taking photographs in the 1960’s age 6 with a Kodak Instamatic.
Twelve years later I had a Pentax k1000 which I still regret parting with and I now work with an array of Canon digital cameras.
I have created and managed a number of businesses and earned a living as a professional commercial photographer, web and graphic designer.

“Thanks Steve for the fantastic course on Saturday. Thoroughly enjoyable, in a language all the group understood. Really managed to grasp the basics and will enjoy practicing. Would recommend your course to anyone wanting to get to grips with their camera”
