Hello, I’m Brian.
Photographically, most of my work nowadays is targeted towards international (PSA, FIAP etc.) competitions, with which I've had some success. Photography isn't my only hobby/interest, and I don't spend a lot of time in the studio - messing around with film cameras and 'classic' lenses take up more of my time than studio work.
These days I’m probably more interested in black & white than colour, although I am trying to change that.
I do little post-processing on my work, and what I do is done extremely slowly. On the other hand I have written my own image-processing software (it's a bit rubbish, but it sort-of works). In the studio I tend to work slowly, although not methodically.
I usually pay models rather than do TF, and if I do pay I now don't give models images (once bitten…).
I gained my LRPS in 2015, in 2018 I gained 'Qualified' status with the Guild of Photographers, followed by BPE1* in 2019. I'm (slowly) now working towards PSA awards.
After retiring in 2019 I expected 2020 to be a productive year, photography-wise - it's not turned out that way!
