The first ‘proper’ camera I ever used was a Pentax K1000 on a works project in the mid 70’s, when the project ended I purchased a Practica MLT3 which was then used for a few years.

This was followed by a few ‘point and shoot’ cameras, which were used to take the usual shots of family growing up.

It was only when retirement was on the horizon that I decided that I needed another hobby, so a Nikon D40 with a couple of lenses was purchased. The D40 was soon upgraded to a D60 then to a D7000.

It then dawned on me that it might be a good idea if I learned how to use the thing and get it off of ‘auto’ so a workshop followed which helped a great deal and it was around this time that I joined YPS.

These days I shoot, mainly landscape, with a Nikon Z6 and various lenses. I still consider myself as a budding amateur who occasionally produces a decent photography.
