Hello. I hope you find this website useful.
I’m often asked so ….. John Curgenven
My interest in photography started when AutoFocus was made possible with a pre-cut length of string and Digital was a reference to a part of the anatomy used to depress the shutter release!
I was encouraged by my parents who supplemented my pocket money enabling acquisition of a manual bellows 2¼" x 3¼" camera. I learned to develop and print my early black and white pictures and then progress to enlarging and to colour processing.
A career in computing funded investment in a professional SLR System. Whenever possible, I pursued my passion for photography and accepted various commissions when they overlapped with my interests - especially landscapes, nature of all kinds and travel.
The recent advances in digital technology have enabled me to develop new techniques and skills, not just with the camera but also in the "PC Darkroom". I find image fine tuning and, where appropriate, enhancement holds just as much fascination as original picture taking.
Now retired from corporate business life and living in a rural Hampshire village, I am able to focus on producing images and helping others to share the enjoyment of photography & imaging. Recently, I have been judging local competitions and giving talks and never cease to be impressed but the talent and enthusiasm shown by the folk I meet.
