A very warm hello to you all…!


It’s been a very long time since I posted on here!

Apologies for that…life tends to get so busy, sometimes we don’t even have enough time to scratch our heads!

Fast forward to now….I can’t recall if I mentioned it last time, but due to personal reasons, I have had to move back to the UK, at least for awhile.

So it is on a rainy, dull and quite chilly Saturday morning that I am typing this, whilst sipping that world famous staple of English life…a cup of boiling tea!

As far as cameras are concerned, I have been unable to indulge in my pastime for a long time, again due to pressures of work etc.

I do hope to get back to it soon though!

Today is also #WorldBookDay apparently, or so #Twitter says……. !

As you may recall, books have always been my other favorite pastime, so I am again endorsing it by saying we should all read at least 1 book a year, if at all possible!

Last time I counted, I have read approx 60 or so books in 18 months…..yes, I know….crazy!

I also need to thin out my collection of film cameras soon too…so watch this space for good, solid working vintage cameras I will be offering!

Until then, take care and be good!

ME & MY PASSION! ok, you probably looked at the length of this "about me" page and thought, god, what's wrong with this guy!....does he have to start telling us his life story or something!!? well, youve come here now anyways, so why not hear what im like as a person, eh? ive been using film cameras for well over 30 years...my first one being the family yashicamat twin lens! over the years, ive both bought sold and collected film cameras...too many to tell the truth! in fact, ive been buying and selling cameras well before the internet came on the scene, so anything you purchase from me is backed by my self-styled moneyback promise.....if you dont like what youve bought, send it back within 14 days and you get all your money back...no arguments!! WHERE I STAND ON THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION! yes, i do use digital as well, but only as a ready-reckoner...i try and take most shots with my simple 2megapixel digicam....if the shot looks good, i pull out my film camera and shoot! i most defintely do not believe in digital manipulation of photographs....that in my eyes is not photography...its cheating! WHERE I USED TO LIVE, WHERE I AM NOW & WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO! i used to live in Ontario, Canada, but moved back to the UK a little while ago (its a long story..!)...but now i'm living in the one place i always wanted to be...Vancouver, BC..the next best thing to paradise on earth! as i work as a freelance writer as well as other things, i often find hat my work takes me to europe for short spells, so i get to travel a lot...not a blessing, as i just hate long flights! im a qualified Quality Assurance guy (you know...ISO 9000, auditing, documentation etc) ....99% of my skill-set is transferable so i can handle any admin or documentation-related roles....see you in BC! otherwise, i specialise in ISO 9000 auditing and documentation. my dream? to have my own thriving camera shop in Vancouver BC, whilst living in the mountains somewhere.....the best of both worlds!
