From an early age I began my photography with winding-on and a four cube flash that spun around when expelled. If in haste to remove the flash, fingers would be burnt! At that time I had a maximum of 36 exposures which I then took to the chemist and one week later I could collect with the excitement of finding out what I had achieved. The lesson in this would be that if I took a blurry photograph of, for instance my dog running toward me, it would be funny, but when you pay for the images out of your pocket money - twice is not funny at all, simply a waste of money and effort. So I began to think, construct and create what I wished to capture and how.
