Lakes of Snowdonia with Phil Norton and Olympus
Sat 22 April 2017, 10:00 – 16:00 BST
Starting a new job after University, and a family, gave little time for photography but eventually the bug took hold again. With the advent of digital it was a new world, I sold all my darkroom gear and got my first digital camera, a Canon EOS 350D. I quickly moved on to Full Frame with the Canon 5Di/ii/iii and L lenses.
Recently I started using Olympus again, with the m4/3 bodies it was like coming home. I now use a couple of bodies and the Pro lenses alongside Canon. Other than an introduction at University I am completely self taught.
I have a passion for the coast, I adore everything about it, the sea, the air and atmosphere, and I try in each and every image I capture to convey the beauty, and the drama of the great outdoors. I enjoy capturing images that show the beauty of our landscapes, and also it's raw dramatic power. I feel at home shooting a stunning sunset or a dark stormy day, both stir the soul.
I have been published in many photography magazines, won awards and competitions and I am a regular contributor to a number of online resources. I supply stock images which have been seen in many publications. The greatest satisfaction I get when I get home tired, and usually wet, is when I receive a thank you from someone who has one of my images on their wall.
