I started around 13 years old an unlucky number! with a camera that I bought with my pocket money from a junk shop, and bought a film at more expense to find that nothing was produced after processing! Somewhere along the journey I acquired a Practica TL which use to have a shutter problem and many 35mm negs where only 18mm!! Eventually I got a Zenit B and later an E which used to scratch the negative film but it was a start!!
Nature images are my favourite and I would happily photograph your pet but please, No weddings!!
