‘I personally left it as long as possible before switching to digital, and it was just two years ago that I bought my first digital SLR – a Canon EOS 20D. I was very impressed with the results, and a year later, upgraded to a Canon 1D MkII N. My 20D was then sold to a very good friend. So I’m just using the one body at the moment but still have my film SLR bodies. I’m already looking to invest in a second DSLR, but just don’t know which one to go for yet.

‘My aspirations for the future are to keep taking shots and make them as original as possible, and also give whoever sees them the feeling that they are, in a small way, there as well. It sounds obvious, but photography has brought me so much joy over the years, I can’t see myself giving it up. In two to three years I would like to have launched a book on a particular subject, and that’s definitely something that’s in the pipeline.’
