Monochrome has always been my main interest in photography. I think I see more pictures in tones rather than colour.
Having been a darkroom enthusiast ever since I took up photography I was reluctant to give this up, but the inevitable disappearance of readily available materials lead me to take up digital capture.
Early efforts at printing were disappointing and it was not until I did a workshop with photographer Paul Gallagher showing how to translate the darkroom techniques into the digital era that my printing really took off. I shall be eternally grateful to Paul.
